Cute newborn hippo named after one of 'Game of Thrones' fave character

An adorable new UK zoo resident, a male hippo calf weighing 30 kilograms was named after Hodor from "Game of Thrones," Mashable says.

Born July 21 to mom Lola and dad Hoover, baby Hodor resides at Whipsnade Zoo in Dunstable, UK.

Zookeeper Angela Robinson said she was fortunate enough to be on site the day Hodor was born.

"The calf and mother are both progressing exactly as we would hope and it won’t be long before we see the pair venture outdoors and explore the outside part of their home for the first time," she said.
