This hippo has abandoned the cooling muddy water of his home pond to do a little solitary foraging. Usually very social animals while in the water, hippos usually go it alone on their foraging trips. The males also temporarily drop their belligerently territorial temperament while "going walkabout" on land. Lake Manyara, Tanzania.
