Leaping Hippo 'Would Rather Dolphin' at San Antonio Zoo

A hippo made a big splash in a dolphin-like performance at the San Antonio Zoo in Texas, diving and leaping around his enclosure to the delight of onlookers.

Footage uploaded to Facebook by the zoo shows hippo Timothy repeatedly jumping in and out of the water. “Why does it keep doing that?” a child onlooker inquires.

“Timothy decided he would rather dolphin than hippo,” wrote the zoo. Credit: San Antonio Zoo via Storyful
