11 July 2011-A baby hippopotamus was born in Paya Indah Wetlands late last night. Both the mother and baby are in good health. The cow, Cendana was suspected to be pregnant in June 2011 during a routine inspection by the Veterinary officer and was isolated from another female, Juwita. The sex of the calf is still unknown at the moment as both the cow and calf spent all their time in the water. The hippopotamuses at Paya Indah Wetlands were gifts from the Government of Botswana to Malaysia in 2001.
