The Memphis Zoo announced the birth of a female Nile hippopotamus on Wednesday, April 5. The 76-pound hippo was born on March 23 and is expected to make her public debut on Friday.

The zoo has yet to name the baby and kicked off a vote with five pre-selected names. The vote will run through April 13.

This is the second birth for mother Binti, and it’s father Uzazi’s first baby.
