    Animal care staff at the San Diego Zoo have determined that their new hippopotamus calf is a girl after nearly two months of waiting. The calf, born March 23, 2015 has been named Devi. Due to the very protective nature of a hippo mom, the calf was often kept tucked into vegetation growing along the edge of the hippo pool.

Funani weighs nearly 3,500 pounds.
