    Guadalupe, a 12-year-old hippo at the Woodland Park Zoo, learns to step on the zoo's new scale for hippos.

What do you think a hippo weighs? Actually, what do you think two hippos weigh? If you think you have a good guess, you should enter the Woodland Park Zoo's contest before midnight Friday. The winner will get to actually meet the zoo's hippos.

The zoo has a new scale for their hippos. On Wednesday, they'll record the official weight of Guadalupe and Water Lily. The keepers have been training the hippos to stand on the scale and hold still to be weighed.

So, what do you think a hippo weighs?
