A zoo in Japan takes hygiene very seriously—you won’t believe what they did to this hippo


Hygiene is very important as it is a way for us to maintain a clean and healthy body. 

For humans, we have ability to take care of our personal hygiene. We have develop tools such as toothbrushes and sponges to help us clean ourselves.
