When we returned for dinner to my favorite guest house in St.Lucia (Serene Estate Boutique Guest House) two Hippos were grazing quietly in the garden beyond the pool.
I love Africa!
The German name for a Hippo is ‘Flusspferd’ which if translated literally mean river horse. But no matter what name they are given I think they are not ideal for riding.
And did you know that the closest living relatives of the Hippopotamidae are aquatic mammals like whales and dolphins? 😊
Enjoy your Saturday!
Hey mummy! Wake up! I am bored and hungry! 😊
Have a good Sunday, stay home and stay safe!
How a Hippo has fun? The most comical picture from my trip to the Lowvelt – more to come soon 😊
This small Hippo started its dinner early. It began eating reeds even before nightfall, when it would be climbing with its family out of the water for a night of grazing!
Yesterday and today I took two cruises on the St.Lucia Estuary, taking mainly bird images (watch out for future posts!) and quite a few interesting hippo shots.
