In this week's Animal Watch, a baby born prematurely is reunited with mom and dad and everyone celebrates. ABC's David Wright reports.

Fiona was 29 pounds when she was born at the Cincinnati Zoo, but that's about half what baby hippos normally weigh.

For the past 6 months Fiona has been chomping along in the hippo equivalent of the preemie ward, getting lots of tender loving care.

But today she’s back in the deep end, reunited with mom and dad. Little Fiona even managed the hippo equivalent of a piggy back!
