Zoo staff at Melbourne Zoo experience an "awe" moment as a baby hippo took a dip in the big pool for the first time with its mother.

This can effectively be described as a baby hippo learning to swim for the first time, and as you can see, it's quite adorable to watch the hippo swim and have the time of its life.

The hippo is a boy pygmy hippo and goes by the name of Obi, which means "heart" in the Nigerian Igbo language.

Now wasn't that just the cutest thing you've seen all day?
