Hip, hip, hooray - Melbourne's baby hippo is three.

To mark the milestone Pansy and her mum Brindabella will share a special cake made from fresh summer fruits and vegetables at Werribee Open Range Zoo on Wednesday.

Zoo keeper Michael Kidman said Pansy was 35kg when she was born, and now is a half-tonne toddler, weighing more than 650kg.

"Like most toddlers, Pansy is very curious and playful ... especially when the youngster has a cheeky nibble on mum's tail," he said.
