Jessica Hippo

Hippo wants a girlfriend. He has a crush on a young hippo starlette named Jessica who lives in Mozambique. She was found as a newborn washed up on the banks of a river. She is now pampered by humans and plays with dog friends.

Hippo is also pampered by humans and has both a dog and a cat as friends, so they already have a lot in common. He's pretty sure she'll fall for him if he wears a sombrero.

I like to hang out with the big hippos! Besides Jessica, my other favorites are at the National Zoo in Washington, DC. They have two Pygmy Hippos (they still look big to me!)AND a Nile Hippo (he's really huge). Kandula, the six year old elephant is pretty cool, too, for a non-hippo. :O)

Hello Mr. Hippo.A.Potamus, I notice that you are searching for a girlfriend, or at least you were in September. If it doesn't work out with Jessica, maybe you will consider getting to know me - my name is Martha and I like to travel also, and I like chocolate and long walks in the moonlight. I'm cute and I'm height-weight-proportionate. (yes I am... for a hippo!) I've included my website here for your entertainment. Cheers!

Ooooo! You are a very cute and height-weight proportionate (for a hippo) girl hippo! And very well traveled, too!

I watched the Animal Planet special about Jessica and learned that she had a boyfriend who was killed. I am very sad about that. Except for the sad part, the show was very interesting. Her best friends are her human mom and dad, and some dogs. She even groomed a puppy with her great big hippo tongue! The puppy was kind of soggy after that, but he didn't seem to mind....

I live in Washington, D.C. where I get to visit the big hippos (and all the other cool animals). I hope I get to visit Washington state someday to see where Martha the Hippo lives!

I would like everyone to know that Jessica's in great trouble. A farmer living across the river sent a letter through his lawyer to the Jouberts telling them he would shoot Jessica if she came on his farm. Now he trying to have Jessica taken away from Tonie and Shirley. It would kill them all.
Tonie wants to raise money to buy the farmer's land and turn it into
a game preserve. It would be a good
idea, because then Jessica and the
other wildlife would be safe. The
area is a natural pathway for animals migrating in and out of Kruger National Park. Please go to Jessicas home page and send emails
for your support. There will be more information there soon. If you have any ideas on how to solve this problem.. email me at
