    Good one, Tony! Did you ever see Lucifer the Hippo at the Wildlife Park in Homosassa Springs, FL? He’s an honorary resident there, as all the other residents are native to Florida. Here is his story. He’ll be 53 years old in January 2013.

  • Thanks AuntDot,been to Homassasprings a few times including a father son fishing trip but have never seen or heard the story about Lucifer,very cool and thanks for sharing it :)
