Today pygmy hippos are found in many zoos, but unfortunately their natural habitat in Liberia continues to be endangered. I've included a video link below to a baby pygmy hippo born in captivity in Australia and also one of the extremely rare hippos in the wild in the Sapo region of Liberia. These pygmies are nocturnal so it is a night time picture of a hippo trotting through the Liberian bush. Hopefully these rare and beautiful animals will once again thrive in Liberia.
