Most awesome hippo video of all time. Seriously…

In Africa, hippos kill more people than any other mammal. That’s not because they’re hungry, hungry, but because they are extremely territorial and aggressive. But not Jessica. Jessica washed up on a river bank after a flood when she was just a day old and she was taken in by South African farmer Tony and his wife. Since then, she’s become a part of the family. Jessica isn’t living in captivity; she’s free to roam and often hangs out with her hippo friends downstream. But she always comes back to her human family.

Jessica is one smart hippo! She can open doors and navigate to the kitchen when she needs a snack and loves to curl up under her pink blankie to sleep with the dogs at night. Take a look…
