We had the chance to checkout Hippo Encounter and it was Amazing!!! This is a great learning opportunity for all especially the kids, and you can all walk away saying— I touched a Hippo!

During Hippo Encounter you will be going behind the scenes for about 20 min and will be standing very close to baby Rosie and her Mama Mara 🙂 you see the pictures I wasn’t zooming in we were really that close! 🙂

You will learn so much about Hippos and how baby Rosie came to be. If you’ve ever wondered what Hippo skin feels like you will have a chance to find out 🙂

You will also keep them company while they eat Lunch 😉 and learn facts like — Why do they spend so much time underwater? How much does baby Rosie weigh? How fast can they run? Are they Endangered? You will have a chance to ask questions so get them ready.

Hippos are the third largest land mammal and how awesome is it that you have a chance to see and feel one up close!

Ill never forget that open mouth and seeing Mama and baby interact was priceless. This was definitely a memorable experience for us. I keep thinking about it and our son keeps telling his buddies he touched a Hippo 🙂
