2010 Digital Calendar photo description 

"Spring Splash"


Mid-morning in the Sabi Sand Game Reserve, Mpumalanga, a pod of Hippopotami

were lazing on the bank of a river enjoying the warmth of the morning

rays of sun. Suddenly the entire pod rose from their slumber and rushed down to plung

into the river with enormous splashes and spray of water in all directions.

relatively thin legs, weighing in excess of three tons. Head: huge muzzle, bigger in males;

eyes, nostrils, and little ears placed high on head. Teeth: canines enlarged as tusks, lower pair up to 50 cm in male,
