About Cincinnati Zoo

You don’t have to live in Cincinnati to keep up with the Cincinnati Zoo & Botanical Garden, which entertains on social media with videos and photos of their many animals at play. In 2017, the Cincinnati Zoo’s hundreds of thousands of Instagram, Twitter, and Facebook fans followed their favorite frolicking furballs Tito (the adorable penguin chick) and Kola (the apple-loving red panda), but they went ape for the lovable hippo Fiona, watching as she overcame a life-threatening premature birth to become one of the hottest social media stars on Earth. Fiona is so popular that she got her own 7-part Facebook documentary, “The Fiona Show,” a NY Times profile, and countless admirers who can’t wait to get their daily #FionaFix.
