A pet hippopotamus!


Sunday on Animal Planet, Jessica the Hippo was featured. This guy saved a newborn hippo from certain death and brought it home to raise as a pet. It lives on their porch, but wanders in and out of the house at will - who could stop her? She spends her days floating in their private pond, but apparently also visits wild hippos that live nearby. But she seems to prefer to hang around the house, begging for snacks in the kitchen - apparently sweet potatoes are her favorite.

Here's a YouTube clip:



Z and I are ready to move to S. Africa...

Now that is freakin' adorable. Do you think a hippo would survive in Alaska?
 
I wish...
