Pygmy Hippo Cam


Watch our Pygmy Hippos live!

You are viewing one of our Pygmy Hippo pools at Melbourne Zoo. You might spot our youngster Obi with his mum Petre. At times when they are in their den or exploring the next-door exhibit you might see Obi’s dad Felix.
Our keepers also drain and clean the pool regularly so you might see them at work in an empty pool.
At night the cameras switch to Infrared and it can look kinda spooky with mist rising from the water. Our Pygmy Hippos usually spend the night in their dens so you won't usually see them on camera after dark.
