Still Yawning by KeldBach Still Yawning by KeldBach
After having slept all day, submerged in the water, one of the Hippos (Hippopotamus amphibius) suddenly surfaced with a big yawn. He's a huge fella and weighs about two tonnes. Taken at the Copenhagen Zoo. See also:

Great detail. They count as one of Africas' most dangerous species for humans. Impressive shot(s)!

amazing shot, the water splash and the beautiful lighting really adds to the photo
and what a big gape, do hippos have different jaws to enable them to do this?

Thanks very much. I don't know if hippos have special jaws, but they're obviously very flexible :)

That's one hell of a picture. As soon as I saw it I laughed out loud (not at your photography skill I must add). It's just so ludicrous.
