Hippo in Malawi

Whoops.  I'm not sure of all the details but it could be 35+ humans no longer here on Earth.

Luke 6:45   ...A good man produces goodness from the good in his heart; an evil man produces evil out of his store of evil.   Each man speaks from his heart's abundance...

It is better to be fearless and cheerful than cheerless and fearful.

I'm reading conflicting  reports but apparently a Hippo was unhappy and took out a small boat.  It may only be 25.  I will just say Ziggy that's not an animal one trifles with assuming they have a double digit IQ.  Weight doesn't inhibit them from running in the 25 mph range.

The Malawian government needs to do something about vessel safety or we should try to help.  This is relatively rare but was likely a mamma hippo with a young hippo being territorial.  Regardless, there are hippos and crocs all over this river and these canoe type boats apparently break down constantly.  There are drownings all the time.  Perhaps this is a wake up call to help impoverished African nations in concert with their endangered animal species.

I don't think Hippos or Manatees should be disparaged or ridiculed brother dgies.  In this particular situation I do feel badly for the humans that perished.  Clearly, Malawi has significant issues but I don't think we have a right to think our lives are more important than these species.  Especially as they are struggling to survive.

Hippos are cool with their crazy bite.

Mantees are literally dead weight. Fat blobs.

Manatees have some stereotypes that are inaccurate.  They're not obese blobs, nor stupid.  Those in tbe Caribbean that have been kind enough to help orphaned Manatees have been amazed at how they interact with humans and their innocent and kind disposition.  They're heavy by nature but it's not their fault.

The Manatee exhibit/rehab center at the Tampa Zoo is pretty incredible. Outside of 1 or 2 true rescues that can’t be released, the entire exhibit is 10-12 manatees on the mend in hospital tanks and reintroduction.  Pretty amazing

Significant funding from David Straz as well

There are some tremendous people tying to help in Florida and parts of the Caribbean.  Manatees have been misunderstood for quite some time.  There was this talking point that they are stupid because compared to other marine mammals their brains are much smaller in size proportionally.  However, marine biologists are learning more and it's actually nonsense.  They're incredibly social animals and learn things very quickly.  I get that brother dgies has some personal animosity towards them but similar to Walruses, their only so called "vice" is that they don't get full.  Different diets of course but I don't think fat shaming either species is fair at all.  It's their nature and often they go through terrible stretches of starvation.

You and brother dgies should take caution in your tone and absurd insinuations.  Hippos are extremely intelligent and very loyal to one another.  Needless to say their power and strength is undeniable and I would tread extremely lightly if you encounter one.

At what point do we just stop allowing people to visit Yellowstone?  Or give them 10 years minimum for forcing the murder of a baby 🦬?  Very. very, very, upsetting.
