Mae Mali, the celebrated 52-year-old hippo, has settled into a new home in the Khao Kheow Open Zoo in Chon Buri, the zoo director said on Friday.

Atthaporn Sriheran, director of the Khao Kheow zoo, said the longest living hippo in Thailand was moved from the closed Dusit Zoo in Bangkok to Khao Kheow on December 18.

He said Mae Mali has fully rehabilitated after the move and now appears happy rolling in water and walks up to eat fresh grass sometimes.

Atthaporn said he is confident that Mae Mali will be happy in her new home.

Mae Mali and her great grandson Tua Kheow was reunited with most of her babies that lived in the open zoo in Chon Buri.

She joined 8,0000 other animals at Khao Kheow Open Zoo.
