Hippos in the water

Photo of a bunch of hippos in the middle of Saint Lucia lake, South Africa. Hippos are notorious for being responsible for many deaths every year in South africa. Therefore, it is wise not to mess around with a hippopotamus, especially a female with its cub.
While rowing I initially thought these were rocks gathered in the middle of the lake. But the more I got closer the more I realised I got confused. I suddenly saw one rock move and open its mouth: it was a group of hippos quietly sleeping!
