Shenanigans at the hippo pool by 

Taken April 2010 in the Serengeti National Park, Tanzania.

I think these were only playing as they weren’t making many splashes and didn’t seem to be hurting each other.

Featured in Animals of Africa group, June 2010.

    Looks like Kissing Cousins to me. Great capture. Suberb timing!

  • Thanks, Barb. They were playing – really slowly, but timing was the key!

    I have just returned from the Serengeti. No matter how patient I was I could not get the hippos to open up.
    Well done.

  • Isn’t it fabulous there? I could have stayed where I was until these two finished their slow-motion play-fight, but there were so many other gorgeous animals to see!
