SAN ANTONIO – Cincinnati’s Fiona the hippo and her lover, San Antonio’s Timothy the hippo, are back at it again, wooing each other across state lines in honor of Valentine’s Day.

Fiona sent Timothy an Edible Arrangement as her Valentine’s Day gift, full of pineapple hearts, strawberries, cantaloupe slices, grapes, melon, and more.

Timothy then took to social media to say thanks... and to hint at another gift coming her way.

"Dear Fiona,

Thank you, SO MUCH, for the Valentine’s Day Edible Arrangement surprise. I’m somewhat of a self-taught food critic, but I have to say...IT WAS AMAZING!

Anyhoo, I can’t wait for you to get my gift there at your zoo, and then tomorrow at 3:00. I’ll be posting a special song that me and my official wingman, Aaron Watson wrote for you!TTYT!

Sincerely,

- Timothy"
