Have you seen this video of a baby hippo who lives as part of a family in South Africa?
She was adopted by a park ranger when she was found after a flood at the age of one day old. She spends time in their house and also with wild hippos that live nearby.
This video is So Cute!, the hippo is now 7 years old, broke a sofa and a bed in their house, and so now is limited to the kitchen and the porch. The hippo is free to leave at any time.
Animals are so precious, aren't they?
I have in my heart a desire to protect the wild animals of Africa, and am a long time member of African Wildlife Foundation, which does great work to protect these beautiful animals, especially the gorillas, elephants, lions and hippos. It only costs $20 to join http://awf.org hint, hint
