Douglas And Friends

This is Douglas The Hippo. And his pals. They live at the Chipembele Wildlife Rescue in Zambia! The Dougster was abandoned by his mom when he was just two weeks old, and they’ve cared for him ever since!

Douglas’s pals are Molly and Coco- read more over at Neatorama.

    How could mama abandon that ADORABLE LITTLE BLORPSTER?! It seems that the hippopotamic (adjectival form of ‘hippopotamus’) reputation for ill temper doesn’t apply to Doug.

    “You can’t handle the cute!!!” That’s so true. I am practically done in by that first photo. *thud*

    Dogs really are the peacemakers of the world. 🙂

    Yeah, eventually he will grow up. And hopefully those dogs will not be anywhere near his mouth at that point.
