I got asked by somebody who had casually visited the site why I included Hippos in the tag line above.
My answer was pretty simple. Because I really rather like Hippos. From a distance, you understand. I’m not quite mad enough to approach a Hippo up close and personal. It could only end badly, as it did in a rather surprising fashion for this critter, which most people would probably be more scared of anyway.
(Warning: Link contains pictures of cute and adorable but in no way cuddly creatures eating a less attractive creature. Entirely safe for work, though.)
