Hippopotamus, Kenya by Carole-Anne
Clear

Hippopotamus, Hippopotamus amphibius. One of the largest animals of Africa which are adapted to living in water during the day especially in hot weather; coming out of the water on cooler days and at night to graze. Hippos are the most dangerous animal in Africa being reponsible for more human deaths than any other animal on the continent. The pink is a natural excretion which acts as a sunscreen.

    A wonderful photo, Carole-Anne. I’ve had a couple of trips to Kenya and remember the Amboseli swamp well, particularly the hippos and elephants that were tide-marked from the water. Good luck with the ‘chunky’ challenge.

  • Thank you Neil.
