Photos by ROB ALLEN
The hippoes translocated in the park in recent months (see previous posts) have scattered all over the park & many of the dams have had some(or one) hippoes in them.
But the calf featured here a few weeks ago was spotted & photographed by Rob Allen & is still with Mum in the Nangolomon Dam, itself overflowing with water owing to recent rains.
No mammal in Nature puts on meat (converted from grass;hippoes are of course grazers) quicker than hippoes……
But beware:hungry lions killed one of the translocated hippoes seeking new territory a week or two ago in the Kiserian valley running into the Park.
Let us hope that this fast growing little hippo survives into the future….
