I am fascinated with Hippos. They are so big, yet move almost silently on land. They sort of run through water and look a lot like a submarine with legs! They are one of the most deadly animals on the continent of Africa … yet they eat grass.
As a kid I would have dreams about Hippos. One dream was that I have a pet Hippo, and rode it like my own personal bulldozer-like horse! The other dream was that I got eaten by a Hippo while on safari … yeah I know, I was a strange kid!
