Abstract:

Hot Hippo is a story set in Africa about the origins of why the hippo sits in the water, wagging his tail and occasionally stretching his mouth wide open. Once the hippo got very hot sitting on the river bank eating grass. He went to the god Ngai who is "the god of everything and everywhere" to ask if he can live in the river. Ngai makes the hippo promise that he won't eat the fish and hide the bones. Thus came the hippo's behavior of wagging his tail to kick up debris on the river floor, making sure there are no fish bones, while he opens his mouth to show Ngai that there are no fish in his throat.--Duana Fullwiley, 8/94.
