ABQ BioPark: Baby hippo is a girl!

ALBUQUERQUE, N.M. — The ABQ BioPark has announced the baby hippo is a girl.

"Well, we’re 99% sure, but the baby is thriving and healthy so our vets won’t need to get a closer look," BioPark officials said.

The baby is almost a month old and doing well, but she still needs a name.

The New Mexico BioPark Society will be hosting a naming contest with more details Friday.

Karen the hippo had surprised the zoo with her pregnancy.
