Hippos love zoos – many of them have shady pools for hippos to relax in. And if you have somebody to carry you around then there are lots of exotic animals to see. Hippo's friend Hazel took a trip to the Toledo Zoo recently and her human Chris shared her photo album.
Hazel buckles in for the trip. It's a little hard to see out the window, so she might take a little nap. Brimmed hats are important for protecting delicate snouts from the sun.
We're there! Do they have big hippos? The design of the sign is a good omen.
Hazel makes a friend. Bronze gorilla backs are so warm and protective.
Hazel measures up. She's not quite as tall as a wild hippo. How do wild hippos ever find a human strong enough to carry them around?
Hazel's carrier is very cozy. It functions as a sedan chair, a nest, and a place to store any goodies she finds.
Penguins are Hazel's second favorite animal.
Oooh! They have one, they have one. A real, live BIG HIPPO! He has a nice beach to walk on. I wonder if he has space for a roommate?
Hazel was so good that she got a treat. Be careful with the Jaw Busters!
That looked like a great zoo to visit. I think the next time that Hippo is in Toledo he'll have to make a pilgrimage of his own.
