We saw this hypo going out of the river and crossing an island to eat some grass. If you think lions are dangerous you should to know that most of humans killed by savage animals in Africa are killed by this pacific animal.
Vimos este hipopótamo saindo do rio e cruzando uma ilha para pastar. Se você acha que os leões são perigoisos, saiba que a maior parte das mortes de pessoas na África, causadas por animais selvagens, foi cometida por estes pacificos animais.

Oh, but it looks so innocent, does it have the face of a killer? I understand they are quite dangerous when they charge against you.

With this type animals know we never, but without small calf are maybe not dangerous.
Colours and sharpness make these picture attractive.
Very well done, TFS.

We have see this exotic African animal not everyday. I remember once I've met hippo in the Tropical Garden on Hainan Island (China).
Good portrait of the hypo, thanks for so interesting note. I did not know this fact.

Hippopotamus comes rarely on earth during day hours Jorge, so you were very prompt to capture that picture, great close up, regards

Espero que hayas estado a una distancia segura del hypo que yo no sabia es tan peligroso
Me divierte el titulo de tus capturas y aca ademas el ojo atento del animal
