Well, Dave, I guess this forum is about "handling and care"...but usually after they've been carved.
My slow DSL connection didn't allow me to get very far into the video and I hope they don't eventually get to that end point.

For those that don't have facebook accounts (or prefer the faster speeds of youtube) here is the video Dave linked to;

Dave - what a calm hippo. It's therapeutic watching this. Now I just need to show Malia how well behaved the hippo is when it gets its teeth cleaned. She could learn a lot from this one hehe.

Thanks, Martyn for embedding Dave's video so those of us with slow connections could enjoy viewing. Some good sized teeth there.

Uhhm Martyn,
When Malia learned, please do NOT stuff her with so much fruit as reward!!!!

I think 1 apple will do....
