  1. a natural sunblock. that’s interesting. you know so much about animals because of your dad. that’s an incredible legacy to have

  2. Wow! So the pink we often see on hippos is their sunblock secretion – that’s fascinating. Your hippo looks a bit hungry – perfect commentary for riding along in hubby’s lunchbag.
