Pink Hippos Aren't Just For Children's Games
ARI SHAPIRO, Host:
Good morning. I'm Ari Shapiro. Two brothers went to Kenya looking for wildebeest and what they found was much more unusual - a rare pink hippo. It's a juvenile. Photos show it toddling next to its much bigger, browner mother. Pink hippos have often been sighted in America, during rounds of the frantic marble munching children's game Hungry Hungry Hippos.
