Hippo Pod.

By rontear  
Taken in Selous wildlife reserve in Tanzania. We stood on the bank having a sundowner whilst these and more Hippo's lay in the oxbow of the Rufigi River. Our guide informed us that it is not till dark that they leave the sanctuary of the water to forage, that is when they become very dangerous. I isolated this three for obvious reasons.

They seem to be lined up in order of size there! I love this, they're tiny ears (in relation to the rest of their size) always fascinate how they're peeping out of the water here.
