Year of the Hippopotamus 2015

Personality of The Hippopotamus.
Hippopotami are very territorial Animals and will happily chase you out of the house if they don't like you.  As such, not much is known about them but you don't want to get trodden by one.  No, really, you don't!  They like wallowing in mud and sometimes get sunburnt if they stay out too long.

Hippopotami are interested in mud, water, eating, pooing and sometimes scaring people.


Famous Hippopotami.
The Moomintroll.
(although not technically a hippo, they are famous hippo-type creatures)



The Patron Saint of the Hippopotamus, being related to whales, is St Brendan the Navigator.  
His information is here http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Brendan

I have also created a special Hippopotamus Treasury on etsy here
