It must be a match made in heaven as two hippospotamus, Juwita and Jiwang were “married” in a simple ceremony held at the Sunway Lost World of Tambun (SLWOT) recently.
The two hippos were presented with a bunch of vegetables and fruits to mark the union. Both partners have been together for the past three months to acquaint themselves better.
Juwita came to Malaysia from Gaborone, Bostwana, Africa in 2001. Jiwang came to Ipoh in January from a zoo in Pahang.
Among those who attended the private wedding ceremony were Sunway Lost World Of Tambun’s families and close friends due the restricted interstate travel.
SLWOT general manager Nurul Nuzairi said the ceremony went well and the couple were treated to some of their favourite food like fruits and vegetables.
“We hope they will have a happy life together in the park. Hopefully, we will see their off spring soon,” said Nurul.
