Feb. 26, 2012 - A hippo in the house – Most women will put up with their children bringin home strange faces and assorted playfriends, but when your two-year old daughter brings home a baby hippo, things can become hectic. It happened to Mary Chipperfield (of the famous circus family) and her husband Roger Cawley, who manage the animal section of Longlest. Their daughter, Suzanne introduced Esme into their home. First the little hippo got into the kitchen cupboards, then decided to take a quick nap on the lounge room floor, before gathering strength to play with her new found friend! “Hold your head high” says Mary Chipperfield Cawley to Esme, the hippo born recently at Longlest. She is watched by her husband Roger. (Credit Image: Keystone Pictures USA/ZUMAPRESS)
