Cute Alert: Jessica The Bourgeois Hippo

This lucky hippo was found as a baby by a South African man who went on to raise her with his their house. (She's already broken a couch and a bed, but hey, she's "big boned.") Jessica snacks with this couple's dogs, chugs coffee all day, and gets evening massages. Although she hangs out with the wild hippos nearby, she always manages to return back home. Uh, duh! The only thing that's missing from this spa setting is Jessica's own home entertainment system!

Wow! She seems so sweet. I love how she would just open her mouth and wait for the reporter to put another piece of food in her mouth. It's weird that she is accepted by the other hippos but doesn't behave like them.
