Up Close And Personal: Baby Hippo Suckles While Dreaming In A Little Pool

April 4, 2017


This is a short video of 9-week old Fiona the hippopotamus at the Cincinnati Zoo and Botanical Garden. In the video, Fiona repeatedly sticks her tongue out to suckle while she's sleeping, presumably because, much like myself, sleeping hippos often dream of having a boob in their mouth. I guess it's just another one of those shared mammalian experiences that separates us from the birds. "Whatever, I dream of tits all the time." Donald Duck! "Meep meep!" Road Runner!

Keep going for the video while I pray for a motorboating filled daydream.

Thanks to Stephanie B, who's convinced humans evolved from hippos. Me? I'm convinced humans evolved from the original 2000 release of The Sims.
