I grew up watching Mama Petite and Tadpole, Birmingham Zoo's last common hippos. Mama passed in 2007 and Tadpole last year. I have found information stating they produced roughly 9 calves. I know for sure one calf was female born Easter Day (4/11) 1993 aptly named "Bunny." I'm sure her name has changed when she was transferred, but I am hoping to find some of their descendants. I miss seeing those two and would love to keep up with any offspring I can find across the country. Mama Petite was c.1957 and wild caught in 1959, whereas Tadpole was born in Oct. 1978 at the Houston Zoo. I am also curious about Tadpole's lineage and who his parents could have been. There is not enough information on our hippos, so if anyone knows anything, I would greatly appreciate it!
