On Christmas Day 1988 Julie the Memphis Zoo hippo gave birth to rare twin hippos (a boy and a girl), named Splish and Splash. About 10 days ago Julie was euthanized due to poor health. She was 51 She leaves behind and adoring public, and 10 "children". In 1990 the male twin "Splash" was sent to a zoo in Florida. Julie's passing got me to wondering which zoo in Flordia that Splash is in. In deed even if he is still in that zoo. Any help you could give would be greatly appreciated. Thanks
Why do I love hippos? Because they look so wonderfully rediculous, and yet they spend so much time in the water. They're really graceful swimmers. They seem adorable, but they're really powerful and extremely territorial. Want to guess what animal is responsible for more human deaths in Africa than all the rest combined? Yup! They don't like it when you get in their space. They'll chop wood boats in half. I once got a chance to feed one, with proper supervision, in a zoo program,) and he started closing his big old head near my hand. I got spooked and dropped the cup of food, cup and all into his mouth. He opened his mouth again and the cup was smashed. Oops! It was pretty funny. Luckily they told me it's happened before.
