Nature photography, political rants, and Martyman laughs from the ten-time award-winning author of "Cool Creatures, Hot Planet," "Endangered Edens," and the "Time Is Irreverent" series.

Hippo Canoe and Zimbabwe Too!

Hippo Stare

Marty’s photo of the day #1805: I photographed this hippo while canoeing in Zimbabwe. After being attacked by a hippo, you might think that I wouldn’t like hippos. But I love hippos! They’re goofy looking, and they have this great, deep laugh that goes “Ha! Ha! Hawwww!”

And the hippo that bit through Deb’s and my canoe was just doing what came naturally. We were in his territory, and he removed us from his territory the only way he knew how. Either that or he thought heavy duty wooden Canadian canoes were a great source of fiber.
