Zoo Basel in Switzerland just welcomed a new baby hippo on July 17th!!
Helvetia gave birth to the little babe in a ditch in her outdoor enclosure.
After the wee baby was born, 23-year-old
Wilhelm, the papa, tried to sneak a peak at his baby, but mama Helvetia was having none of that!
She kept shooing him away, because she's super protective of her new baby.
What's crazy is the baby has to dive underwater to be able to drink his mama's milk! He resurfaces every 30 seconds for a breath of fresh air.
That sounds tiring!!
He'll be eating solid foods in a few weeks, but for now, it's all about diving down and getting a meal.
The baby hippo is the tenth baby for the
hippo parents but he's still just as special and unique as any of the other babies!!

hosted the Purina Pro Plan Incredible Dog Challenge on David Letterman The Late Show because he loves doggies!
The whole point of the incredible dog challenge is to have dogs compete in agility, racing, disc and diving events!
These dogs are true athletes who are loyal, competitive, smart and super talented!!
Letterman hosted a cool segment where doggies were competing against each other to see who could dive the furthest.
It's so incredible! These super obedient dogs listen to their masters then perform incredible athletic feats!
These pups can jump well over 20-feet with ease!!
Check out the video (above) to see which doggy can jump the furthest!

This is seriously a once in a lifetime event!
Rich and Laura Howard are a couple who were vacationing in Mexico, celebrating their 20th wedding anniversary.
When underwater, filming some friendly sea lions, the dive master suddenly signaled to them to come to the surface, the dive was over.
Confused, they quickly realized that there were whales swarming the area… killer whales!
As they got in the boat and sped away… the whales followed them, playing in the boat's wake!!
Check out the video (above) for some big orca whale's putting on a free show!

Katherine Webb, one of the hawtest contestants left on Splash, has exited the show!
So what was it? Did she argue with
Louie Anderson about reruns of Life With Louie?? Nope! Poor girl got injured!
Just a few weeks ago
dropped out of the show because she's afraid of heights — though, we're not quite sure why she joined it in the first place then. Maybe she wanted to conquer the fear? Oh well. Kendra
Anyway, Katherine is now out and NOT by choice:

will do anything to get a story. Anderson Cooper
Including fall off jet skis and going
Anderson recently went scuba diving in the Nile!!
Sounds like it'd be so beautiful and so much fun!
Oh yeah, did we mention that it's full of man-eating Nile crocodiles?!
He literally was swimming through murky water, the only light coming from their cameras.
Then in the distance… what is that??
Check out the video (above) to see Anderson's run-in with a Nile croc!

Katherine Webb and Nicole Eggert are really determined divers!
On Thursday, the ladies did a little stretching before they went head first into the water, and is it just us, or are they looking as fine as ever?!?
Swimming has always been a wonderful exercise, and because Katherine and Nicole do it on a daily basis, their bodies couldn't be anymore fantabulous.
We cannot wait for the show to premiere 'cuz just by peeping at the pics, it's definitely gonna be competitive!!
Ch-ch-check out the dolls (below)!
