Less than two months after his birth, Prince Harry, a pygmy hippo at the Cango Wildlife Park, has died.
Harry's mama rejected him at birth, so trainer Toni Inggs stepped up to the plate and tended to the calf around the clock.
The baby hippo died on the operating table after doctors tried to fix a hernia.
Named after Prince Harry of Wales, spokesperson Tammy Moult said the following about the charming hippo:
[Toni] is completely devastated.
The pint-sized 'jelly-baby', as Toni so lovingly referred to him, will be sorely missed by all who had the privilege of meeting him.
We're sad we won't get to meet him too!
