That's a great photo of the hippo yawning (or was it snarling at you). They're powerful creatures, I wouldn't want to get in their way. The girls look totally unfazed by the man with the gun. I had the surreal experience of being escorted across the carpark by man with rifle at the YMCA in New Delhi - that was a place I didn't expect to see guns!
