I think the hippos are giving you the evil eye, which in case you don't know the saying means they are not at all happy with you. Well captured.

Who's a big old grumpy-wumpy rhino, then? I think I would think twice about talking to him today...looks like a bear with a sore head...oh no, it's a rhino, not a bear...never was any good at animal recognition!Blush
