I love hippos. I just had to leave a comment. I can say that I am one of the few people who have actually gotten to know hippos. I was a zookeeper for six years, and I took care of hippos. I did not go into the enclosure with them, they could have crushed me acidentally. But I discovered that they are smart, loving and complex gental creatures. Now if you are talking wild hippos, I would not fear them, but give them the respect and the distance they deserve.
