Springfield, Mo. -- (8/10/17) Former Dickerson Park Zoo hippo (Henry) has not been out much with Fiona and Bibi. This Papa hippo has not been feeling well and has been choosing to stay inside. He has been more tired than usual and does not have much of an appetite. His care team is working hard to diagnose and treat whatever is ailing him.
Henry was moved to Ohio in 2016 after living at Dickerson Park Zoo for 34 years. Henry made the move to Cincinnati last June to breed with Bibi, a female hippo relocated from Saint Louis Zoo. They are parenting Fiona who was born at the Cincinnati Zoo & Botanical Garden prematurely. They ask that you send positive thoughts his way.
