    River Horse ...photo by Brendon Cremer ---- This young hippo, part of a larger pod, was very inquisitive and interested in us. It kept on bobbing up and down in the water as if is was peering over the edge of the boat to get a better look at us and what we were up to. Chobe River, Chobe National Park, Botswana.

    Hippos are intelligent and very interesting. Saw a video of one raised by people who found him as an orphan baby. He was still returning to visit them though living in the wild.

The gorgeous pool at Saa NaNe House, which in Swahili means "2 O'Clock". It is also known as the "Trust House" in Kenya. The hippo sculpture overlooks the pool and the pool overlooks the river where you can watch dozens of wild hippos swim!

Hippos. (KO) A clutch of hippos hanging out in a group in a river. Hippos are so cute that people don't realize how dangerous they are. They are responsible for many human deaths every year! They turn over small boats that come near their herds and kill the occupants. Very grumpy critters! But to be fair, they have babies in this herd. A small boat could kill a baby. I'd get ugly, too, if they came near my teeny hippolet!
