Fiona, the Cincinnati Zoo's beloved premature hippo, hit a 40 pound benchmark. 

The Nile hippo was born six weeks early. She is receiving 24/7 care from zoo staff but has made consistent healthy progress.  

Zoo officials hope to have Fiona living outside in Hippo Cove with her parents by the spring.
