Hippos are not normally described as "cute" but your photos of this family sure have a cute look to them.

Dina said...

The happy family. So sweet!

They look cute in your photo, but hippos in the wild can be real mean.

Nice family portrait. I really like it.

After I was hacked I had to give up my old user name and the blogs that went with it. My Birds Blog was among the give-ups.

So this is the new birds blog and I hope you can come visit. Birds Birds Birds and Birds

Todo bebê é lindo e fofo, mesmo que seja de um animal grande, e nada belo.

I won't use the adjective sweet for a hippo, even for a baby one, but I like the group picture and the very natural and relaxed pose...

It probably weighs more than we do! Great shots!

Jarart said...

That is a cute family.

Kay said...

They look as if they're smiling. Nice shots!

JM said...

@Dave: Oh yes, I know! The hippo is the animal who kills more people in Africa, mainly fishermen. Actually I got really scared once when I was having dinner at the Lake Naivasha shore in Kenya. Fortunatelly all ended well, but the situation could have been quite serious!

PerthDailyPhoto said...

Well they do look very contented lying there JM, if you didn't know what they are capable of you'd never guess! Brilliant shots, I love Zoo pictures that don't look like zoo pictures, you know what I mean..

Babzy said...

How beautiful! Hippo mum looks as though she has a smile on her face! :-)

Lowell said...

They are so ugly, they're cute! But big! Not animals to mess around with, I think! Great hippo portraits!

Loved you story about God's fans!

Jack said...

Cuddling up with mama seems to be a shared mammalian trait, doesn't it?

La Mode Operandi said...

Make sure my friend doesn't see this! He always makes ridiculous pet requests!

Randy said...
