Hutto’s Hippos

Little Hutto, Texas, population 17,000, is a town replete with hippos. Not real ones, mind you, but every variety of inanimate hippo possible. That’s right, the hippo is Hutto’s official town mascot. Why would a town that has no real hippos take on a hippo as their mascot? Well, apparently, some years back, a hippo tumbled from a circus train and wandered loose around the town. Ever since then, town residents have felt a special fondness for the rotund creatures. Here’s a little more about the town of Hutto:

Hutto is planning to erect the largest hippo in the world, some 20 feet high, thus cementing their claim to fame as the hippo town. Learn more about Hutto’s hippos.
