I watched the video and it is fantastic. I think that having a hippo in a family is a good idea. The hippo is very big and friendly with this family. I recommend this video!!!

i've never had a pet before, because my parents never like them. I always wish to have a cat so i can hug her everyday. That hippo is so... cool :D

I like this video very much. It's very extraordinary to have such animal at home. I would never dare to it. In general, I love animals. I have a cat and a parrot. They are my pets. It is unusual that a cat and a parrot live together. But they have already used to each other and a cat doesn't disturb a parrot. But of course it's impossible to compare pets and wild animals. Because the last ones have a lot of trouble.

I think it's really interesting and exciting to keep a wild animal at home. Of course it's dangerous but it's so extraordinary! As for me, I have always dreamed to have pets. Unfortunately, I keep only fishes at home. That is why I would like to have more animals, even if they are wild. Why not? I believe that each animal can become a real friend for the person, if the last one take care of him. I think that I would afraid to keep a hippo at home. But I would like to keep a tiger or a lynx. Maybe it sounds crazy, but I really love all the cat family.Oh! I forgot about the horses! If I had such possibility, I also would like to keep a horse at home. Because I really adore these animals.

I could never have a hippo for a pet. And I can't believe that Jessica sleeps with dogs and eat with them. She even gets a massage! That's one lucky hippo :)

It's a really cool video. I'm sure it isn't too easy to have such a pet. Even if you succeed into tamin' it, I haven't heard that a hippo can became a part of a family. Do you agree with these people that animals & people have some qualities in common? For instant, they also are able to love, to slack instincts? As for me, yep, and this hippo demonsrates us it. As for me, wide animals sometimes are worth being domastic. It's unusual and gives you a possibility to chill out with strange animals. I believe that these feelings are worth trying out. May be, somewhen in future, I shall try it myself...

I thought she was cute.I think it is hard to live with her because she eats a lot everyday.
I want to have a medium size snake.
I would put him around my neck.
I would feed him frog.

Hi Jonathan, Thank you very much for your help. And yes. Sometimes it is hard, specially when you are looking after a puppy :-) but I enjoy it very much.
Best regards, Ash
