Furious hippo

by Anton van Zyl

This furious hippo came running out of the Lengau dam chasing after the Spoonbills and Ibis’s that were sitting on the side of the dam, and who were between the hippo and her calf at that moment.

Great shot
by: Patrick

Hi, great capture, one does not often see the hippo out of the water and this one with his mouth so wide open.
Well done.

Very cool photo
by: Peter

Most of my hippos photos are of them in the water - you did well to get him out in the open with his mouth so wide!

"It's 768 pages of the most amazing information. It consists of, well, everything really. Photography info...area info...hidden roads..special places....what they have seen almost road by road. Where to stay just outside the Park...camp information.
