Hippo Holiday Spirit

Now that Thanksgiving is done, it's time to finish shopping for presents for my little hippo pod.  To help me get into the holiday spirit, I did a few of my favorite holiday things. 

I went to see the skating rink at the National Gallery of Art Scultpture Garden.  

They didn't have any little hippo size skates, so I watched the other visitors, admired the scenery, and sipped a hot chocolate to keep my snout warm.  

After that, I decided to go see the fancy window displays at Macy's.  Yes, hippos, there is a Santa Claus!

This window reminded me that I needed to do my shopping!  I went to the bookstore to pick up a few more presents.  (Don't tell anyone what I bought for them--it's a surprise!)

Shopping works up quite an appetite!  I finished my day with dinner and visiting with some new friends!

Dental Care for Hippos

Even hippopotamuses have to remember to brush their teeth. At this zoo in China, the hippos get some help from a zookeeper with a broom.

If they're lucky, they might get more help fighting those decay germs from a friendly beaver.
