Hungry Hungry Hippo

Hungry Hungry Hippo, originally uploaded by M. Rosenberg.

So. This is a real, live hippo. I don't think I had ever seen a real, live hippo before until this past weekend. I've never seen a more fake looking animal. I don't know if that's the best way to describe them, but they just don't look real to me. They're more like one of those animatronic devices you'd see at Disney. Anyway, these were real. You can see them for yourself at the Camden Aquarium.

This guy (or gal, I don't know) was trying to give me a kiss though the glass. Or trying to bite my face off. One of the two. Most likely the latter.

I love this one! That's a national geographic kinda shot. Excellent work. The colors are so great in it.
