at a black tie potato chip feast held in the Wool Socks and Mittens Closet here at the Hideaway.  Hipster and Hipstah House Hippos accepted the accolade on behalf of Hamster Bandit Press for the riveting story,                           A House Hippo Adrift in the Manitoban Wilderness . Speaking via Skype,  Hipster and Hipstah, who shared the role of the intrepid Wyndham Crommett the Third, graciously acknowledged their mother, Zucchini, as the source of their internal stamina to persevere against the bitter cold weather that was essential to the storyline.

Cruton here.  To be a House Hippo is to enter freely into the elevated state of House Hipponess.   See What is the North American House Hippo?  


Another way to tell is if someone smiles lovingly at you and says, "You're my little House Hippo", then you know that it must be true.  


Of course, there's no denying that you do have the beautiful physical appearance of a House Hippo.


So yes, Georgia, a dog can be a House Hippo.  Any creature can be a House Hippo!

Hi House Hippos!


My name is Georgia and this is me in Seabright, Nova Scotia.  I saw the image of the HH running through the kitchen at night and immediately thought that someone had taken a video of me.  Can a dog be a House Hippo?

​Cruton here.  Everyone  will be pleased to know that the dramatic rescue of Murungal (Mu) took place as planned and we have given him a page on our website to tell his story!

Oh Tu, thank-you so much!  I can't wait to meet you!  Everyone tells me I'm very loud so you'll have no trouble finding me...  See you on May 29th. Your friend, Mu

​Mu, yes Tu is fine with me.  My friends and I will swing by the Zoo and you will make your escape on the last day of the blooming of the dahlia's.

That's wonderful, Tu!  (Do you mind if I call you Tu?)  Do you think you might be able to come to Australia?  Mu

​Hey, Murungal!  Tucson here.  It just so happens that I will be visiting New Zealand in May.  I'm going with friends who might be able to help you.

Hey Guys!  Is there anyone out there who does 

rescues?  I am living at the Taronga Zoo in Sydney, Australia and while it is very nice here,  I'd like to leave.  The only way off this Island is by ferry and no one will take me!  

                                   Can anyone help? 

Yours truly,

Murungal (it means thunder in Aboriginal Australian) the House Hippo.



Sydney, Australia

                 Did you know?

The word hippopotamus is ancient

Greek for River Horse?

That a group of hippopotami is

called a pod or a thunder?

Dear Cruton, I took this snap of you when we met outside Arles, France a few years ago.  I'm glad you finally found Meg.  I would like it if you wanted to write me.      Your friend, Sahondra
