Endangered species of hippo born at Bristol Zoo

An endangered pygmy hippopotamus, born at Bristol Zoo, has made its first public appearance.

The new male was born three weeks ago but has remained hidden from the public until now to allow his mum and dad to settle into parenting.

Nato and Sirana gave birth to a female hippo last November but it died five weeks later.

There are fewer than 2,000 pygmy hippos left in the wild.
