I am not real bright but I wonder why are there Hippos at this watering hole? Hippos are in water most of the time. I can't locate another water source on Goggle earth. Where are they coming from and why would they leave one to come there?
Katjathanks katja ill check into this!!!sounds interesting!!!
*snicker* Aww, poor fellow. That would have been a great sight!
Not too long ago, a Hippo arrived at night and fell asleep in the water hole. You could tell that the poor thing was trying to get low enough in the water to be unseen, but, the water wasn't sufficiently deep for hiding. No matter. He (she?) just fell asleep there anyway.
I've seen hippos on a number of occassions, usually at night...
Thanks... I never knew that about Hippos.
If you want to learn more about hippos and other animals you can see on the cam, I recommend the Game Ranging/Field Guiding course at wildlifecampus.com.
Signing up is free, and once you are registered you will be assigned some free lessons.
There are dams that are big enough for hippos a few kilometers to the East and West. So the hippos could have come from there.
When out foraging at night it is not unusual that hippos are found several kilometers from the dam/river they live in.
i heard hippos are really viscious and very territorial
I tried to find the photos posted but couldn't ... maybe someone else can. But it is hippos.
