    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.
