Fiona, Hippo, Holiday, Season, Queen, 2017, Cincinnati Zoo

By Nathan Vicar

(AMP) — Fiona the Hippo has had a pretty a big year.

She’s not even a year old and she’s sort of the queen of 2017.

Born six weeks premature at only 29 pounds at the Cincinnati Zoo in January, Fiona has garnered quite the online fanbase — just look  at her engagement photobomb.

Now, Fiona is sitting pretty at 622 pounds, according to the zoo. Plus, Fiona’s zoo team has transitioned her to an all solid food diet — no more bottles!

The Cinncinati Zoo decided to celebrate the holidays with Fiona on Dec. 21. In the zoo’s video, currently sitting at 3.9 million Facebook views, she can be seen munching and tossing her gift box before finding some lettuce within.

Fiona will be celebrating her birthday on on Jan. 24, so expect one heck of a party.
