Zoo Basel in Switzerland just welcomed a new baby hippo on July 17th!!
22-year-old mama 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!!

Now this is how you pass some time!
On Thursday, Justin Bieber was spotted snowboarding in Switzerland's Hoch-Ybrig ski region, and taking into mind that Drake Bell just bashed the singer's writing skills, we're surprised that he was out having some fun.
However, because he knows he has to prove his haters wrong, the Biebz let us know that he can enjoy himself and also werk his butt off.
The 19-year-old sensation tweeted:

The world may be desperate for any small peek of Kate Middleton's ever-growing baby bump, but it appears that this weekend, the Duchess of Cambridge kept her Royal Fetus away from prying eyes so they would instead focus on the wedding she was attending in Arosa, Switzerland!
Kate was spotted alongside her husband Prince William and brother-in-law Harry at the nuptials, which celebrated the marriage of Olympic gold-medalist Laura Bechtolsheimer and Mark Tomlinson, and deliberately kept herself covered with a long cream coat as she smiled during the ceremony!
Ch-ch-check her out (above)!
