WHAT MAKES HIPPO'S MILK PINK ??

You must have heard in most of the Fact Sites that Hippo's milk is Pink, but ever wondered why ?
Well, here's the answer :

1- 
Hippopotamuses have adapted to utilize two unique acid secretions in their skin.

2- The first is called "hipposudoric acid" and the second is called "norhipposudoric acid".

3- Since these are strong acids, they deter the growth of bacteria on the skin. 

4- In addition, hipposudoric acid is colored bright red while norhipposudoric acid is colored bright orange. 

5- The combination of these two acids provides hippopotamuses with a sunscreen effect because these colors absorb dangerous, cell-destroying ultraviolet light. 

6- Hippopotamus milk is most likely pink due to the combination of these acidic secretions with off-white milk (red + white = pink).
