Surprise Hippo

Published : 26 Jul, 2016

Karen Paolillo has studied the Turgwe Hippos for over twenty years and she knows them all individually but even Karen can get a surprise sometimes and this time the appropriate surprise came from Surprise hippo. She was just wanting her food and it was taking too long to get it.

      Ruthie she is looking so much better than she did two months ago all thanks to the food that we are giving her thanks to donations. I have to keep feeding though until December. Love Karen and the hippos
