Far to early for the First Hippo of the season.

Needs a good 'Flood Tide' to get as far West as Whickham.

Hippo hunting starts early in a leap year, least in Hebburn it does.

Should be easy as she had to go to the vet to have an operation on her hoof, not really sure if hippos have hoofs or not but you know what i mean.
