ALBUQUERQUE, N.M. (KRQE) – The zoo is getting ready to celebrate a big birthday.
Brynn the baby hippo is turning one on Thursday and they want the public’s help to celebrate.
On Thursday and Saturday, people can sign a card for the birthday hippo and there will be other special activities planned.
Brynn now tips the scales at 500 pounds. He lives with his mom Karen, father Moe and sister Boopie.
Zookeepers say Brynn likes to hang out with Moe and mimic his behavior.
