It’s unusual to meet a hippo raised by humans who seems content, but Jessica is an exception.
Since being rescued from severe flooding in 2000, the aquatic creature has developed a deep affection for humans.
However, people of her species aren’t exactly welcomed with open arms.
The hippopotamus is widely regarded as one of Africa’s deadliest creatures.

Though she no longer lives with them, she still regularly visits them.
