    Funani, an African river hippo at the San Diego zoo, gives her female calf, Jazi, a little nudge as they swim. The hippopotamus – Greek for "river horse" – is a semi-acquatic mammal that spends much of its time keeping cool in the water. The creatures appear more graceful and even elegant when fully submerged, but their enormous size means an adult hippo can often get by just by walking or standing on a lake or river bed.

Moose Babies! Look at those legs! It is very dangerous to approach a baby moose for two reasons: mother moose IS always nearby and ready to charge and baby moose is a grizzly bear's favorite snack. Photos are much safer! (FYI - Adult Moose are not to be approached either, they can charge & stomp you)

I once saw some rhinos trotting away. They were breathtakingly graceful. This must have been about 40 years ago when I was 10ish - the picture is still vivid and startling in my mind.

Baby hippo. The young often rest on their mothers' backs when the water is too deep for them, and they swim under water to suckle. They also will suckle on land when the mother leaves the water.
