Hippos and Gumdrops
Today is Hippo Day. Hippopotamuses are quite dangerous animals, killing around 3000 people each year! These water loving pachyderms can’t swim. They mark territory by flinging poop with their tails. They produce pink milk, which reminds me: it’s also National Gumdrop Day! Percy Truesdell was the Gumdrop King, perfecting the candy in 1915.
