A new, big baby hippo is named after your favorite ‘Game of Thrones’ character


Though Hodor’s no longer outfitted to hold doors because of, well, you understand…, your Game of Thrones fave only acquired the tribute he deserves in the form of an adorable new UK zoo resident.

Per SWNS, a male hippo calf weighing 30 kilograms (roughly 66 lbs) can thank the Game of Thrones giant for his name.

Born July 21 to mom Lola and dad Hoover, infant Hodor resides at Whipsnade Zoo in Dunstable, UK. Zookeeper Angela Robinson said she had been lucky enough to be on site the day Hodor was born.

“The calf and mother are both progressing exactly as we would expect and it will be long until we see the set venture outdoors and learn more about the exterior part of the house for the first time,” she explained.

Maybe Hodor and Fiona can binge-watch Game of Thrones together sometime.
