Inquiring Minds Want to See.....


Hippo That Lives in a House...
In class, we were discussing the journey through the underworld that the Egyptians took to the afterlife. While on the topic of the weighing of the heart, we discussed Ammut, the creature that eats the heart. Ammut is made up of a few animals, one being a hippo. We talked about how dangerous these animals were to the Egyptians and how they feared them.

I shared a story I once saw about a "Hippo that lives in a house." I said I would share the video...

  1. Oh my GOSH! I didn't even think that a hippo could live with someone let alone live inside the house! I can't believe that it even knows how to open the house door to get food. That's CRAZY!
