The Dallas Zoo can now say with certainty, it's a girl.
The zoo revealed the gender and name of its new baby hippo Friday.
Zookeepers call the calf "Adanna" (pronounced uh-donna) -- which means "father's daughter" in the Nigerian Igbo language.
The latest news from around North Texas.
The name is a tribute to the calf's father, Adhama, who died suddenly last fall. The zoo said his cause of death was heart-related complications from a viral infection.
"Adanna" is three weeks old, the Nile hippopotamus was born May 14.
She's stayed very close to her mom, so it took a while for the zoo to confirm her gender.
Adanna and her mother, Boipelo, made their public debut last Saturday and have become a crowd favorite at the Simmons Hippo Outpost.
