Baby Hippo Taking His First Swim Is The Cutest Thing On The Internet Right Now.

After spending weeks practicing in the pool at the Melbourne Zoo, 3-week-old pygmy hippopotamus Obi has finally decided to take a dip on his own, and it's basically the cutest thing to ever happen.

At first, Obi sticks close to his mother to explore his surroundings with the feeling of safety by his side. However, he builds his confidence quickly, and is splashing on his own in no time. This video is the first time that Obi went into the larger pool at the zoo, and his swimming skills and adorable face will definitely make you smile.
