Here is the Hippopotamus at Oregon Zoo.  My first encounter with Hippo’s was on the Jungle Adventure ride at Disneyland where you only have to worry if they wiggle their ears. Luckily this one didn’t because they are considered one of the most aggressive animals on earth and can easily outrun a human over short distances. The Oregon Zoo has two female Hippo’s Mukenko (born in 1993) and Kiboko (burn in 1994).  The zoo’s Hippos eat 30 pounds of hay and a half gallon of grain daily. They also feed on apples, carrots, lettuce and anybody that climbs over the fence (just kidding about the last part but seriously don’t get Hippo’s mad).
