Never seen something like this before! Was he still alive Jan? If there was nothing wrong with him, it is an exceptional photo! :thumbs_up:

I hope the hippo was okay too!!! It looks like he/she was doing some synchronised swimming practice. Just need a daube of nail polish on those nails and then you ready!! Soo comical and cute no matter what their size.
