Common Hippopotamus (Hippopotamus amphibius)  To get to the lagoon to take pictures of hippopotamuses is one thing; to not scare them away is another. For a while they vigilantly sized me up, but after I sat in the same spot without moving for over an hour and for the third time in two days, I ceased to exist for them... That is why later that day I was able to take several photographs of hippopotamuses fighting right in front of me...
