Stepanida is the 16th hippo born in our Zoo. Kharkov Zoo has been keeping Hippos since 1961, they habe been breeding regularly. Our Hippos have baan transferred to many Zoos.

Her nature is similar to her father's. She is quite friendly and kind. She likes water-melons, pumpkins, strawberries, apples, carrots. But she can't stand plums.


Taking into account her likes and dislikes, it was decided to make her a present out of carrots, cabbage, applespaprika and hay. She adored her present and consumed it in a minute. Another surprise for her was her pool decorated with flower petals. She took a bath like a real princess. She splashed and rolled in water, she even tried to eat some of the petals.
