THE HAPPY HIPPO (Evolution Crusher)… From the new book, “EVOLUTION: A FAIRYTALE FOR ALL AGES.”
OK, maybe they aren’t actually so happy but I wanted a fun title. In reality, hippos (or River Horse in the Greek) can be extremely destructive. Their sheer size makes them virtually invulnerable to attack other animals (including crocodiles). In fact, in Africa, more people are killed by hippos than by any other animal. A large bull hippo may reach up to an incredible 4.5 m (15 ft) in length and weigh over 3.6 tonnes (8,000 pounds) – more than some mature female elephants!
The hippo’s teeth are also fearsome. Its curving incisors are razor-sharp, and they can easily grow to over two feet in length. They are also composed of ivory, the same material as an elephant’s tusks. But unlike the tusks of an elephant, hippo ivory doesn’t turn yellow with age, making it a higher grade of ivory. In fact, George Washington’s teeth were actually made from hippo ivory, not wood as the tale goes. – Creation.com
The San Diego Zoo has recorded hippo grunts to hit about 115 decibels, comparable to a rock concert when you’re about 15 feet away from the main speakers (Where many hippies used to stand back in the day, to later in life go half-deaf).
And, last but certainly not least, hippos usually spend as much as 16 hours or so a day in the water. The reason being, their skin is very sensitive to sunlight, thus they secrete an oily reddish substance, which at one time was thought to be blood. This serves as an antibiotic and a sunscreen as well. While awake, they can hold their breath for up to five minutes.
While they sleep in the water, they surface automatically and breathe without waking up. We have a very Creative Creator, wouldn’t you agree?
If you choose to believe these things just evolved by sheer accident over long periods of time, then so be it. As if evolution would have a hippo know it needed to surface to get oxygen while it stayed asleep.
Come on now, really? Creation Science would paint a much different picture, such as this is how God created the Happy Hippo.
