    Great video. Nice to see them so relaxed and happy. Good to see how much Georgie has grown too!Thanks Karen.

    Another great video, Karen. Loved all these huge animals peacefully dozing on the sandbank, one of them using the back on front of it as a cushion to rest its head. (Sorry I can’t remember the names of the individual hippos in that group, so I have to refer to the sentient-being-unfriendly “it”) But the best was little Richard (or soon to be called Richard) puddling next to his mum.
    The hypos are doing very well, kudos to all of you who make that happen.
