    L.A. Zoo's only hippo euthanized after weeks-long illness

    [​IMG]

    The sole hippopotamus at the Los Angeles Zoo was euthanized Friday after being ill with an unknown ailment for a month and not responding to treatment, zoo officials said.
    Zookeepers noticed in December that the 28-year-old hippopotamus, Jabba, had a decreased appetite, abnormal bloating and was not responding to medication, zoo spokesman Jason Jacobs told City News Service. The hippo was under close veterinary care, but his condition rapidly worsened in the last few days.
    The zoo's staff made the "difficult decision" to euthanize Jabba, according to a statement released by the zoo.
    Jabba had been at the zoo since 2009. Before that, he lived at the San Diego Zoo for several years, where he sired several calves.

    His body will be taken to the California Animal Health & Food Safety Laboratory System at UC Davis for a necropsy.

    Was, but this is still so awesome. Always puts in perspective how helpless humans are as babies. We'd instantly die if life was all, "Welcome to the world! NOW FUCKING SWIM".

    Top three:

    1. Lion - I always wanted to be one when I grew up and still do. Plus, I was JUST at the zoo yesterday and I heard one roar repeatedly. It was incredible. It reminded me why I love them so much. He was beautiful.

    2a. Leopard - Such a bad motherfucker. Strong, fast, stealth-like abilities, gorgeous.

    2b. Hippo - Just read this thread.
