Happy Birthday!

Mali's partying today! Woo-hoo!

Fun facts about Hippos you may not know:

1. They're vegetarian
2. They are the most dangerous big animal in Africa, killing way more people than lions or any of your usual scary predators.
3. They're very closely related to whales - the ancestors of all whales were hippo-like creatures that permanently moved into the water, and over time their arms evolved into fins. You can imagine how an animal like a hippo might make that transition in the future - they spend most of their time in the water already. Just give up the land, man!

Anyways, and this is almost always the point of this blog: I just liked this picture, and it fits the dialectic! No need to read anything else into it....
