Another CSOTD (Creative Something of the Day) to share:

Hammock Havoc

Hammock Havoc

Some hippo facts (courtesy of The Toronto Zoo):

  • their jaws can open to 150 degrees
  • their skin exudes “blood sweat”, droplets of moisture containing a red pigment
  • babies weigh 27-50kg at birth (ouch)
  • they spend two thirds of the day in water but don’t eat aquatic plants
  • they are hunted extensively for their ivory teeth and for their hide (boo)
