Thanks for all you support everyone. Little Prince Harry the Hippo is doing super well thanks to the very special care that the Cango Wildlife Ranch is giving him. It was a close call, but we got him to a place of safety. He is still not completely out of the woods yet, but you can like his Facebook page to get regular updates about how he is doing ( Or you can even follow him on twitter to hear what he has to say about the world (@PrHarryTheHippo). His carer, Toni Inggs also regularly posts up adorable photos that she takes with him on her twitter page (@Toni_Inggs). Thanks again for all the prayers and support. CWR
