Hippo's all around!

So, I've uploaded a bunch of hippo photos. You can see them in the East Africa photo stream at the top of my blog.
The photos uploaded are made in Maasai Mara in Kenya, Queen Elizabeth in Uganda, Serengeti and Mikumi in Tanzania. Yeah, I also have hippo picks from Ngorongoro and Selous, but just did not upload them. You have to make some sort of selection...

For those who like the biological details:
Click a link and you'll go to the Flickr photo page for that rank in the biological classification. Or have a look in the 'Find wildlife photos' menu item on the left.
