Jessica the Pet Hippo

If you pay attention at all to news of the hippo world, you have certainly heard of Jessica the pet hippo. Found washed up as a baby by a South African family over 7 years ago, Jessica has been fed and pampered ever since. She is even allowed into the house and can open the door herself! I’m totally down with having a pet hippo but I’m not sure I’d want it in the house – what about that spraying poop? It’s bad enough to clean my cats’ litter boxes – I wouldn’t want to wipe up a plume of poop all over my walls. Anyway, here’s the video. You can make up your own mind about keeping a hippo as a pet.
