A video of a hippo and his keeper has gone viral online. Reason? Well, it shows how the hippo understands his keeper’s commands and keeps his mouth wide open while she performs a dental procedure on him. The trust and cooperation between the two is winning over people.
“Training with Tucker!” wrote Cincinnati Zoo while sharing the video on Instagram. The video shows a trainer grinding Tucker’s tooth as he calmly keeps his mouth wide open. In between, they take breaks and feed the hippo with lettuce or leaves.
In the video, the keeper explains that Tucker had arrived at the zoo with a broken left tooth, which was causing pressure on his upper gum. To relieve some pain, they have ground an inch of his tooth and need to grind further.
