    I'm getting a few comments saying that hippos do eat meat on occasion, which is something I looked into while writing this episode as well. Based on what I found during my research, hippos only eat meat when severely stressed or starving (insert another Darkest Dungeon reference here) and since they can't actually digest it, I think it's fair to still call them obligate herbivores. tl;dr a healthy hippopotamus will only eat vegetation.

    Meat and organs for obligate herbivores are one thing, bones are another. I read somewhere that there's a breed of deer that actually kills birds to eat their bones to supplement their diet. Supposedly, the prevailing theory is because the island the deer live on has poor quality and quantity in vegetation. Apply the same idea here and well... If giraffes can be documented as chewing on the bones of other deceased herbivores, I see no reason why hippos wouldn't do the same in times of stress, like extreme drought or famine.

    Tierzoo, could you do a video on the unique "Named" creatures on the Earth server? Creatures like "Gustave", the crocodile who killed 300 people, or the infamous "Moby Dick". Creatures who earn names are probably boss-level monsters, so a quick guide to their stats an abilities might be useful.

    Dude hippos are omnivores look it up. Most people don't know this and it's probably cuz hippo players aren't carnivorous very often because they don't wanna get banned for being op
