    Background: Exclusively filed by
    VISNEWS - the record-breaking mother hippopotamus. Maren, and her fifteenth
    baby, at Copenhagen Zoo, Denmark, June 3.

    New 37 years old, Maren has amazed zoologists with her fertility and ability.

    She was born at Hamburg Zoo and as far as Copenhagen Zoo is concerned she was a
    worthwhile investment - her babies have been sold to zoos all over the world.

    Keepers at Copenhagen are wondering whether Maren knew this year was the Zoo's
    centenary and felt obliged to celebrate it in her own uninhibited way.
