And I wanted one of those little House Hippos... pfft. NOW I SHALL HAVE THE REAL THING.
There must be many a squished foot in their household. D:

 |  Jul 21, 2007 at 10:56 AM

Aiiiaaaaaaghhhhhhhhh. I think I had my mouth open as wide as a hippo's watching this.
I'm struck senseless my the sweetness of it!

 |  Jul 21, 2007 at 10:57 AM

Lol... that poor dog getting it's foot squished. Least it was ok though heh. I'm sure that probably happens all the time.
That was really amazing though.
Watching her eat with the dogs, and going inside to get more snacks.. and the last part with her snuggled up in her blankey with a buddy beside her.. so cute :)

 |  Jul 21, 2007 at 10:58 AM

Wow that was soooo amazing! The best part was the lady massaging the hippo before bedtime!!! and the doggie sleeping beside her! (hence the pink sheets)

 |  Jul 21, 2007 at 10:59 AM

Aww, this is pretty darn cute. Especially there at the end all wrapped up. Definitely NOT typical hippo behavior.

 |  Jul 21, 2007 at 11:01 AM

That is one well cared for Hippo! Sheesh! What animal or person wouldn't come back and hang around for that kind of treatment?! Where's my Hippo suit?

Now I really want a Hippo for Christmas!!!!!!

 |  Jul 21, 2007 at 11:06 AM

My mouth is as agape as Jessica's. You have to show someone the video because otherwise they would never believe it.

Thanks Meg!

 |  Jul 21, 2007 at 11:06 AM

The best thing about this is that the hippo's name is "Jessica".

 |  Jul 21, 2007 at 11:10 AM

That is incredible. She has such a bond with the humans as they do with her. LOL when she goes in the house. The ppl dont even care, they just let mozy on in and get a snack. Priceless!!!

 |  Jul 21, 2007 at 11:11 AM

Given the rep that Heepoz have in the Wild, this is truly remarkable stuff.

i love the end part during the massage when Jessie closes her eyes in contentment and gives off a little hippo sigh.

OMG!!1 Jessica the hippo. :D I love they named her Jessica of all the names in the world.

How cute was she sleeping under her blanket and a dog curled up on her side!!!

I have to watch it again. And again.

 |  Jul 21, 2007 at 11:37 AM

Hippos drink coffee?

 |  Jul 21, 2007 at 11:47 AM

I wish I could have a nice, big hippo hug right about now.

I already knew Jessica from an other broadcast, Tensai Shimura Doubutsuen to be precise!
Check this, this is about a girl (Yinling) who is scared of animals. They use Jessica to wipe away Yinling's fear for animals. Breathtaking!

 |  Jul 21, 2007 at 11:59 AM

Please tell me this was another of the famous BBC April Fool's Day broadcasts. The massage and the pink sheets were just a little too much to be believable.

 |  Jul 21, 2007 at 12:02 PM

I sort of wonder about the purpose of the sheet during the massage... I mean, with humans, it's to preserve some modesty, I thought, but when you're dealing with a hippo who runs about in the nude all the time, well! Not complaining (too adorable!!!), but I'm just sayin'!

 |  Jul 21, 2007 at 12:08 PM

the last scene ... so comftubles.. heehee

 |  Jul 21, 2007 at 12:18 PM




 |  Jul 21, 2007 at 12:18 PM

i would like a massage before bed, please.

 |  Jul 21, 2007 at 12:24 PM

"Yeah, I pretty moishe watched this one with my mouth open in disbelief the whole time..."

Because you were hungries!

 |  Jul 21, 2007 at 12:44 PM

It's like the equivalent of raising 20 kids!!!!!

 |  Jul 21, 2007 at 12:44 PM

why is i crying now.. sneef.

 |  Jul 21, 2007 at 01:00 PM

Just one question...Just how much do they spend in groceries per week?

 |  Jul 21, 2007 at 01:01 PM

How much time do they spend cleaning the floor in a week, if Jessica spends much time in the kitchen? I don't know how easy it is to housebreak a hippo....

Seconds on loving the name "Jessica" for a hippo... even a baby hippo.

*jaw drops*


Is exactly what I said. How wonderful is that?

There needs to be books about Jessica the Hippo.

 |  Jul 21, 2007 at 01:21 PM

Yes!! A children's book about Jessica! It could help them financially feed Jessica!

 |  Jul 21, 2007 at 01:32 PM

Okay, I have GOT to get me a hippo now. They're not a high-maintenance pet are they?
Where do those bottom teeth GO when she closes her mouth??

 |  Jul 21, 2007 at 01:42 PM

"Ma, I wanna keep it ... it keeps coming back!! And it's all nice and snorgly, too!!!"

 |  Jul 21, 2007 at 01:46 PM

Ok that has to be one heck of a grocery bill, with thte snacks and coffee LOLOL
that has to be something ...

To precious for words and I want one too I loved her bed and sleeping buddy at the end.

leah b.
 |  Jul 21, 2007 at 01:58 PM

That's it! Shut down Cute Overload! There is NOTHING cuter than that video. Everything posted after this will never make me go "Awwwww!" the way that hippo cuddling the dog did.

I also think a universe imploded somewhere.

 |  Jul 21, 2007 at 02:07 PM

Uh...do they realize that Jessica is going to keep on getting bigger for about the next 20 years?

Cute, but unnatural. Of course she keeps coming back. There's a free buffet at the gamekeeper's house.

 |  Jul 21, 2007 at 02:11 PM

omgah omgah omgah. did you see her ears wiggling with content?!

normally i get annoyed when people piss on the cute parade, but today nothing can harden my heart after watching that darn hippo.

 |  Jul 21, 2007 at 02:45 PM

I want a hippopotamus for Christmas.
Only a hippopotamus will do.
No rhinoceroses,
or dinky Tinker Toys
I want a hippopotamus to play with and enjoy.
I can see me now on Christmas morning creeping down the stair.
Oh what joy and what surprise when I open up my eyes
to see a hippo hero standing there.

And so on, and so forth.

 |  Jul 21, 2007 at 02:52 PM

Why ARE hippos so damn cute? I can't work it out. Not nuffing or nuffin', just curious.

Sarah, maybe the sheet is to keep away bugs? I know that at some times of the year they make river hippos very grumpy. Or maybe it's because baby hippos like to have a blankie of their own, in the manner of puppies and such? In which case, it's so cute it's preposterous.

 |  Jul 21, 2007 at 02:54 PM

omg what an anerable little(or big) hippo! she is so cute! i cant believe how tame she is--im always seeing news stories on how violent they are. well jessica defies all that! i luv the name too; its so human!

bunny luver!!!
 |  Jul 21, 2007 at 03:11 PM

I will never see hippos the same way ever again!

All together now:


 |  Jul 21, 2007 at 03:21 PM

That was too moische! Jessica and the dogs eating was cute, but that bit at the end when she's ready for sleepies? Priceless. That's all just neat.

 |  Jul 21, 2007 at 03:50 PM

As sweet as that video was I'd be scared of denying Jessica food when she wanted it.

 |  Jul 21, 2007 at 03:55 PM


That was the sweetest thing I've ever seen. The entire video track was crunching and munching. sigh.

 |  Jul 21, 2007 at 04:22 PM

How do you submit a picture?

 |  Jul 21, 2007 at 04:22 PM

Jessica reminds me of a teenage boy, always grazing food, never full.
And yes, I'd LOVE a MAH-sage before bed too, thanks.
Very very cute. (But Rikki's cuter....)

 |  Jul 21, 2007 at 04:53 PM



That is one of the most precious things I have seen in a very long time.

Too Many Maureens
 |  Jul 21, 2007 at 04:56 PM

This has just killed me. I can't even move. I MUST have a hippo. Daddy, I want a hippo NOW!
(what happens when she gets to big to fit through the door? That wall is coming down)

 |  Jul 21, 2007 at 05:15 PM

I love how the dog covers his eyes at the end as they settle down for sleepies!!

 |  Jul 21, 2007 at 05:39 PM

Ok that was weird

Shannon Johnson
 |  Jul 21, 2007 at 05:53 PM


That was the best thing ever.

 |  Jul 21, 2007 at 06:04 PM

Oh wow.
And the best thing is, she's socialized with wild animals, so she still would be mating and having little bulgy hippo babies. :)
