This Baby Hippo Showering At The Cincinnati Zoo Is The Definition Of Zen

By Mustafa Gatollari

I'm not the biggest fan of hippopotamuses. Not just because they look like mutant manatees who have somehow grown legs and inspired one of the most overhyped board games of all time, but also because they're murderers.

A whopping 2,900 people are killed annually by hippos in Africa every year. That's more than sharks, lions, cassowaries, and other dangerous as hell animals, so don't let their chunky appearance fool you; they're stone cold killers.

But, that doesn't change the fact that baby hippos are utterly adorable. I mean look at 'em.
