  5. It’s Really Hard to Castrate a Hippo, but Vets Have a New Technique to Get the Job Done. Sorry, Hippos

    Bad news for hippos, but also probably not great new for vets.

We repeat, since there's been some confusion...you know what? Just check out the above video from AsapSCIENCE, who once again just knock it out of the park with snappy answers to our stupid questions. Oh, and also brightly colored pictures. We like pictures.
