Fiona shows how real the "struggle" can be

CINCINNATI, Ohio (WSYX/WTTE) -- You know those moments when you're hungry, but you're too tired or too lazy to move? Apparently, so does Fiona.

The Cincinnati Zoo posted a ten-second clipof the five-month-old hippo attempting to eat what looked like a small piece of lettuce.

As she was lying on her side, she kept repeatedly reaching for it with her mouth, but like the proverbial "carrot on the end of a stick", the vegetable was just beyond her nose. Rather than moving her body to grab it, she persisted with the same approach as the video ended with her attempts coming up just short.

Hopefully, all "hard work" eventually paid off.
