One Word Photo Challenge: Hippotamus

Oliver, Patrick, Whale, Hippo Natural History Musem Kensington

This is unbelivable. Where am I to find a photo of a hippopotmus in the middle of Switzerland. The largest animal I find here is a cow, or perhaps a bull, but our amphibia are usually frogs.

I then remembered a visit to the Natural History Museum in London, where they have dinosaurs, so I had a look in my photo album. This was in the early eighties, on a visit to my mum and dad in London aged around 9 and 14.  I was watching my two boys who were fascinated by the objects shown. The main animal here was a large whale and you can also see the skeleton of something big in the background. On the right my hippo, although I am not sure if it is the sort of hippo you would meet today on the Nile. He was not dangerous, just showing his teeth for all to see.
