Let sleeping hippos lie.

The Hippopotamus is an interesting creature. In the wild, it is considered the most dangerous animal in Africa. The closest I can get to one is at the local zoological society. This Hippopotamus was fast asleep, or so he wanted us to believe. He seems to know everything going on around him, even though he looks to be sound asleep.

Location: Philadelphia Zoological Society, Philadelphia, PA
