    The "River Horse"

    This past week I took a break from reviewing my Greek lessons and looked at pictures I have taken in the past. I came upon these photos of the hippopotamus and I marvelled at the fact that the name of the animal was Greek, a combination of ἵππος ("hippos", horse) and ποταμός ("potamos", river).

    These photos were taken at the Toronto Zoo on August 1, 2012.
