Lovely capture Colleen. Nice to see a hippo out of the water, for a change.
This one looks like it's only just emerged.

Think Dave may be right about it just having emerged...or someone's given him a good polish! Very well posed for you though, Colleen, and very nice reflections in the water too 👍

Good reflections but can't help thinking he is such a big boy to be in a zoo.

Melbourne zoo is huge. The animals have amazing spaces and designed to suit their natural habitat. He has a huge water hole and a lot of space to rom and hide. He is about a third of the size of normal hippos.
