Fiona The Hippo Kissing A Little Girl Is The Most Adorable Thing You’ll See Today

The internet is a good place to find things that make you go “daaaaw.” But we may have found the “daaaaw”-iest thing the internet has ever produced and surprise! It involves a baby animal.

The baby animal is Fiona, who has risen to internet fame on account of being a baby hippo and also being ridiculously cute. Fiona spends her days at the Cincinnati Zoo, where she has embraced her status as the zoo’s favorite Instagram model.

But Fiona may have outdone herself this time. On Dec. 2, the zoo shared a photo of the adorable tiny hippo sharing a sweet moment with an equally adorable tiny human:

I’m sorry, I just can’t even. If you looked at this photo and your heart didn’t melt into a pile of emotional goo, then I am sorry, but you are dead inside and you should probably get that checked out by a doctor.


“This may be the cutest thing you see all weekend! #TeamFiona #cincinnati #cincinnatizoo,” the zoo wrote on the post.

Um, Cincinnati Zoo, I don’t want to tell you how to caption your photos but you spelled “century” wrong. Let’s see if one of the many Instagram commenters can more accurately describe this photo:

“That is the cutest thing I have ever seen” – leahbelle21.

“Cutest picture ever!!!” – medicho.

Okay, that’s more like it. Obviously, lots of other people thought this pic was totes adorbs, judging by the fact that is has nearly 40,000 likes and all of the heart-eyes emojis. And this isn’t Fiona’s first viral photo. She also photobombed a couple’s proposal earlier this year, because if there is one thing we know about Fiona, it is that she loves love.

Yep, Fiona the baby hippo has been the only good and pure thing to come out of 2017. #TeamFiona forever!
