Baby Hippos Deliver Happos (12 Gifs)

Happos, the hippo version of happiness. Yes, we just made it up, and no, we aren't particularly proud of it. 

Hippos! Also known as possibly nature's most adorable murder machines. That's right. According to BBC, an estimated 500 people per year are killed by this giant and angry blob. They are known to be aggressive and very dangerous. But as we watch vids or look at pictures of baby hippos, they look so derpy and adorable, we can't help but melt. 

If we ever do come across a hippo in the wild, we will be cautious. Until then, we can admire these cute (but deadly) animals from afar.

Pygmy hippos are an endangered species, there are approximately fewer than 2,500 of them currently living in the wild. 

And now, the San Diego Zoo has revealed the exciting news that the latest addition of the beautiful species is a male pygmy hippo! The hippo has had a successful birth and is the first of its kind in over 30 years!

His mother, a 4-year-old pygmy hippo named Mabel, is a first-time mother and is doing well after giving birth to her 12.4-pound calf. 

"Mom and calf are doing very well, they said – and the calf is nursing and getting lots of attention from the first-time mother," San Diego Zoo Global said in a statement.

Congrats, Mama Mabel!
