AVONDALE, OH (FOX19) -

The Cincinnati Zoo & Botanical Gardens released a new video of Fiona and it might just be the cutest one yet.

It appears as if the Nile Hippo is smiling while water from a hose is sprayed on her.

"Fiona's parents, Bibi and Henry, both enjoy hose play, and it looks like it runs in the family," reads a social media post by the zoo. "This was her first experience with this type of enrichment."

The zoo said the water was slightly cooler than in the hippo's pool, but not chilled, because Fiona is not able to fully regulate her body temperature on her own.
