Have you ever wondered why Parker Brothers chose a hippo for that classic game? Is there any myth or truth behind hippos being so hungry all the time? In terms of sheer volume the blue whale weighs in as top beast in the animal kingdom, consuming up to 2.5 tons of krill per day. In the smaller scale of things, the pygmy shrew has to eat twice it’s weight in food per day to keep up with the amount of energy it uses. Why then choose a hippo? Worry no longer, here’s the proof. Check out this PBS documentary clip of hippos absolutely thrashing one another. Skip ahead to 1:30 to see the start of the fight and right around 2:00 to see the sheer size of their mouths. Seriously, hippo? Y U mouth so big?
