CINCINNATI, Ohio - Fiona the hippo is celebrating her second birthday today at the Cincinnati Zoo.

She overcome some incredible odds to survive.

She's captured the hearts of millions of people around the world, including 6 In The Morning anchor LeAnne Taylor. "I can't prove it, but having watched her over the last two years, she sure acts like she knows she's special," LeAnne said.

LeAnne said the zookeepers say Fiona's skin feels like an avocado with slobber on it.
