Best of cute animals 2013 (so far!)

This photo, made Wednesday, Oct. 9, 2013, shows a baby hippo, foreground, that was born Oct. 3 at the Gulf Breeze Zoo in Gulf Breeze, Florida. Baby hippos are born in the water and will nurse underwater and they surface every 2 to 3 minutes for air. Mother and baby remain on exhibit for visitors, although they may be submerged.
