Here's a Hippo & a Leopard from Valencia Bio Park

Difficult conditions with the hippo, through a plate glass window with quite bad light, lots of debris in the water as well as loads of fish getting in the way

I agree, the leopard is nice, but a fairly standard sort of shot, but the hippo is something special. I'd say he's certainly aware of you.

I think this was the same Hippo, about 2007-8

I think he was definitely aware of me that time :-)

Nice one. I think I remember reading somewhere that Hippo's kill more people a year in Africa than sharks do in a year in the world, their rolly-polly appearance belies the fact they are extremely aggressive.
