There are baby hippos of the pygmy variety, we take a look at the sniffer dogs on the frontline of our border protection and we investigate the fascinating life cycle of the silkworm! BABY PYGMY HIPPOThe pygmy hippo is the smallest species of hippopotamus on the planet and, as it just so happens, is also the cutest. Join Justin Valentine from the Melbourne Zoo as he walks us through exactly what it takes to look after their latest addition.
