Illustrator Richard Cowdrey

Safari Society patrons and Business Partners are invited to hang out with the hippos and enjoy an early morning experience at the L.A. Zoo! Guests will be introduced to Fiona the Hippo, a Nile hippopotamus born at the Cincinnati Zoo six weeks premature and weighing just 29 pounds (Nile hippos generally weigh between 55-110 pounds at birth). Kids of all ages will participate in a draw along with the book’s illustrator, New York Times Bestselling Illustrator, Richard Cowdrey, and keeper talks highlighting the real-life animal counterparts to the characters in the book, special animal encounters and a light breakfast will also be provided.
