Ha! Had Jack Hanna's Nature Show on watching Hippos mud bathing in the sun
How fun it would be to roll around and bath with them.
What was I thinking?

Someone told me it was a rhino, but hippo's better. It shows, that one has to go to Newcastle for coal.

I always do love seeing hippos for some reason.. they are just so uniquely molded and I too love rolling around in the mud.. Maybe that's it! Very fun romp here!
