Snapshot Sunday – Hungry Hungry Hippo

hippo

 

Despite being the third largest land mammal, hippos can be relatively hard to spot on Snapshot Serengeti as they normally only leave the water, where the spend most of their day, and venture inland at night to graze on the short grasses. Almost all images of hippos that have been found by our volunteers are taken at night.
