Hippos (Carolrhoda Nature Watch Book)
Standing on a riverbank in eastern Africa, you spot a dark, unmoving shape in the water--a rock, right? Suddenly a pair of eyes and a snout appear, then sink out of sight once more. The sight of a common hippo in the wild is increasingly rare. A glimpse of its relative, the pygmy hippo, is almost unheard of. What can be done to save these magnificent creatures? The first step is to get to know them, and author Sally M. Walker and photographer Gerry Ellis are ready to make the introductions. Join them on a tour of the wet and wild world of hippos.
