Today is Hippo Day, when we celebrate the world’s third largest mammal, the hippopotamus! Found in Africa, these massive beasts may look gentile and perhaps even cute (anything that opens its mouth nearly 180° when it yawns can’t help but be adorable, right?), but they are actually pretty dangerous. They’re capable of out-running a human and often have an aggressive temperament. So, yeah, don’t piss off the hippo!
I was delighted to see so much fine art devoted to hippos! There were so many beautiful pieces, it was hard to narrow them down. Click through to the treasury on Etsy, and take a closer look at some of these finds! Plus, I have plenty of other Every Day is a Holiday treasuries right here!

“Every Day is a Holiday” is my Etsy Treasury project for 2014. I’m hoping to find unique and beautiful items that exemplify the holiday of the day—the sillier and weirder, the better! What’s better than finding something worth celebrating each and every day?
