Mr. Munro took this photo at the Auckland zoo. When we visited Africa we saw quite a few hippos. We stayed at one camping ground by a waterhole where they came out at night and grazed by our tents. The hippo is considered one of the most dangerous animals in Africa, and the worst thing you can do is to get between a hippo and water or a hippo and its offspring.

Great photo! I know they are dangerous but they don’t LOOK dangerous. I think they’re cute, especially the pygmy hippos.
I think they’re cute too. Love the pic. :smile:
Cynthya – I agree that they don’t look dangerous. Despite their size, they can move REALLY fast though!
Jaime – They do have the cuteness factor, don’t they?
Wow what an amazing picture, it makes me want to go to Africa too. He looks so restful in th water.
I love the Hippo. It must have been a neat experience to see them in Africa.
Cute, Nice entry. Mine is up!
You guys take the greatest pictures.
I’ve always loved hippos. I like it when they come up out of the water and wiggle their ears, I think it’s cute.
