Description: Baby hippo prepares to bite his mama

Story from behind the lens: After watching a cheetah hunt and make a kill, we pulled over by the river to talk about our recent experiences. As I turned to watch a pod of hippos, I saw a youngster doing mischief like they do, and began to make some images. The little one did wind up biting her mom, but I like the anticipation of this image better, with her mouth wide open!
