Penguin here.

I know it might seem a little weird to be looking at hippos from behind, because usually butts aren’t the most pleasant things to look at, but you must admit that these hippos are awfully cute nonetheless, even if you’re only seeing their back end. What particularly made me want to post this picture was the amazing size difference between the hippo mother and her hippo calf. Look how tiny he looks in comparison! Anyway, I bet those two are having a really nice time swimming around together like that.
