Hippos, or Hippi ?


Thery look slightly comical, but these chubby beasts are very dangerous, very territorial and with hair trigger tempers, they kill a lot of people, more than big cats or crocodiles do.  From our safe vantage point on the road above this dam though they seem like gentle, placid animals.  This was a group of about 8 hippo, wallowing in the water and grazing behind the dam.

    Either the hippo's have adopted him, or he's sold what possessions he had, including the family, and he's bought passage to Oz to see the eX-cons not regain the ashes!
