A pygmy hippopotamus calf is now on display at Omaha’s Henry Doorly Zoo and Aquarium.

The calf named Mable, which was born on October 1, has gained 57 pounds since her first weigh-in at five days old.

Though she now weighs 76 pounds, once full-grown she can weigh between 350 and 600 pounds.

Mabel is on display in the African rainforest exhibit of the Lied Jungle, along with her mother, Chomel, and father, Scooby.
