Superb pic of the hippos fighting. Just a lighter side to this - how about a cartoonist's take on the goings-on? The hippo on the right rolling its eyes, and the two youngsters on the ground, who couldn't be bothered to get out of the way., depsite the risk of being trampled.
My feeble attempt:
hippo 1: the one on the bottom left has just got to come out, it's killing me.
hippo 2: me too, see, mine's the bottom left as well!

I'm sure we have some better humourists in our midst!
