Almost missed it...


















A nasty traffic jam caused me to run late for a media call with Taronga Zoo's first baby Pygmy hippo in 23 years. I almost turned back - except for the mention in the media release that this little gal is only 6kg. ie the size of a biggish cat. Her name is Monifa. She's being hand-reared by keepers. Throughout the press call she seemed fixated on nuzzling their shirts. I can reveal that most members of the media pack were besotted. Its a terrible shame such a birth is a rarity and world news. Anyway, check out Monifa for yourself...
