Rare baby hippo delights Mexican zoo

The male hippo was born in July and at the time of his birth, zoo officials said he had only a 15% chance of survival due to the fact that his mother "Tamba" had trouble feeding her previous offspring.

But the baby pulled through and now zoo officials are celebrating his growth and the fact that he's eating solid food.

Hippos are considered a vulnerable species by the International Union for Conservation of Nature.
