FEBRUARY 15 NATIONAL HIPPO DAY Ever heard the cutest song, “I Want a Hippopotamus for Christmas?” Gayla Peevey sings in the 4th verse, “I want a hippopotamus for Christmas, only a hippopotamus will do, no crocodiles, or rhinoceroseses, I only like hippopotamuseses, and hippopotamuses like me too.” LOVE IT! But can you imagine getting a hippo as a gift?!?! Hippos are large, mostly herbivorous, semiaquatic mammals that are native to sub-Saharan Africa. Did you know that hippos can’t swim or float, but they stand or walk on surfaces below the water? Did you know that they are the third largest land mammal (after the elephant and white rhino)?
