The final washing

LSC News

Update: #hippowash is now live!

Bubbles the hippo spent her life educating the public. She won’t stop now.

This time last year, LSC acquired Bubbles’ skull from the Toledo Zoo. For months, a team has been preparing Bubbles for display. Tomorrow, Fred and the team will wash Bubbles the hippo (skull) for the last time.

Fred will take questions from guests in Eat and Be Eaten at LSC, and also share some facts about the process we used to clean Bubbles. You can follow the cleaning, and learn more about hippos, by following #hippowash on Twitter. We’ll live stream the wash at 11am. Keep an eye out on #hippowash for the live stream link, and find us on Instagram for some #hippowash photos.

Watch our previous hippo wash videos below and we’ll see you at The Final Wash!
