CINCINNATI -- We know Fiona's already gotten most of us with her sweet eyes and hefty neck rolls, but our not-so-little hippo could really get you now. Well, not really, but she's now an "Honorary Deputy Sheriff."

The Hamilton County Sheriff's Office presented Fiona a certificate complete with her new title Wednesday.

Fiona's accomplished a lot lately; dad Henry joined Fiona and mom Bibi in splashing and swimming in the zoo's Hippo Cove Tuesday.

Family introductions will continue and the hippo care team, encouraged by what they saw Tuesday, hopes to increase the trio’s time together, the zoo said in a release.
