“I wanted to share good news. The Lisbon Zoo in Portugal has a new baby Okapi, born in May. He was now presented to the public and he’s the only baby of his kind in Europe. And he’s such a cutie. Do you know they’re relatives to the giraffes? Hope you can give him some love.” -Vanessa (Sounds like the little dude needs a name!)

And They Call It Hippo Love

And they called it hippo love
They’ll never really know a hippopotamus
How a young hippo really feels
And why their love is so redonkulous…

Peeps, here is Jessica; Tonie and Shirley Joubert’s pet house hippo. She even gets a bedtime massage before being tucked in under her blankie, which is pink, of course. Gah!
