Pretty Bitches? Some Jessicas Are Also Fat, Hungry Hippos

She washed ashore near a couple's South African home when she was only one day old and has lived with them for the past seven years as part of the family. Watch her do cute stuff like drink coffee, open doors, hang out in the kitchen with her "mom" and sleep under a pink blanket, snuggled up with her friend (one of the family dogs) at night.
