Last year’s singing and dancing hippos were such a success that this year we ordered more of them AND because we love our customers so much, we ordered a second kind!!! Yes, that’s right, now you can choose from TWO different kinds of singing and dancing hippos! Here’s a pic of the new gal in town:

We’ve got a limited quantity of wine glass hippo charms available now. You attach these to your wine glasses when you are entertaining so your guests don’t pick up someone else’ glass and drink from it. Ick! Our upcycled bubble gum machine hippo charms protect your glass when you are not drinking from it. Just make sure your hippo doesn’t sip at the wine when your attention is elsewhere.

I’d like to officially invite all the pink animals of the world to come live at my house. I am totally in love with this pink dolphin who lives in to Lake Calcasieu, an inland saltwater estuary in Louisiana:

And I totally admire the shocking pink of this katydid, although bugs are not my favorite.

But to now have a pink hippo! Well, let’s just say it can’t get better than that.

Rare Pink Hippopotamus

Rare Pink Hippopotamus

This little darling was spotted by British wildlife photographers Will and Mathew Burrard-Lucas in early September as they cruised around Kenya’s Masai Mara game preserve, hoping to capture images of the world-famous wildebeest migration. (Why?) Presumably, now that they have discovered the wonder that is HIPPO, they will now stop haunting the poor wildebeests and start shooting more hippo pics.

The brothers were breakfasting along the banks of the Mara River when the little pink patooty bumbled out the other side. Of course they grabbed their cameras and started shooting.

Little Pinkopotamus is not an albino, as you may think. Her pink skin is caused by a condition called leucism, a condition characterized by reduced pigmentation. Albino animals have no pigment whatsoever.

The brothers wrote:

“Being an animal that is so strikingly different often results in a hard life; these creatures frequently become outcasts, rejected by their conventionally colored peers. In this case however, we were relieved to note that the other hippos seemed to be treating the pink hippo just like any other.”

Well, of course Little Pinkopotamus is being treated well. Hippos are highly advanced creatures, capable of great love and affection. Maybe when she grows up, we can introduce her to Svetik, a Russian pink hippo that I’ve written about before.

We’ve got two wonderful batik wall hangings of hippos with other animals, straight from South Africa, where they were hand painted in beautiful, rich tones on 100% cotton. Not only can you hang these on any wall, but you can also use them to make a bedspread or throw. They are nicely sized at 60″ on the longest side. Click on the images to purchase.

Rudolph the French hippo has been kicked out of his own country and deported to the Ben Aknoun Zoo in Algiers where he will be joined by a hot mama from Madrid who will play Spanish guitar for him and dance around with maracas after which they will mate and start a new Algerian dynasty.

Rudolph the French Hippo

Rudolph the French Hippo

The 37-year-old Rudolph was intended to make the move with long-time Polish girlfriend, Pelagie, but she took one look at the sparsely furnished military plane and refused to board it. So Pelagie was shipped to a zoo in Hanover, Germany, where she has been promised lodgings with lots of orange, her favorite color. The French military has refused to comment on their failure to uproot one little hippo.

Rudolph was a bit stressed out by his trip, especially by all the guns he saw on board the military plane, as he is a gentle soul and abhors violence. Upon arriving, he immediately took refuge under the water and has refused to come out.

Algerian zoo officials hope that Rudolph will pop up soon as the Algerian public is clamoring to see him. Not to mention the $50,000 they spent to move him to his new home.
