April 2, 2016:

I am inspired by the natural intelligence of the hippopotamus, the semi-aquatic hairless horse of the river, who self-screens against the harshest rays of the sun by exuding “blood sweet” from his skin; and who swims along in his shallow water domain with his webbed feet (more closely related to a whale than a land animal), feeding mostly on aquatic plants and yet attending to the health and infinite growth of his sharp incisors by establishing a mutually-beneficial relationship with small fish, who happily feed on parasites between his teeth. Now that’s one way to avoid cavities and high dental bills…
