Our cement hippo is fifty years old. She was an iconic presence in Dr. Cailles’ hometown in Indiana, and Dr. Cailles grew up with her. On a visit home with her husband and daughter, Dr. Cailles mentioned how she wished her daughter could have the opportunity to also grow up with the hippo.

Dr. Cailles has learned you have to be careful what you wish for …..
