Elephant and Hippo

I've found some nice pictures of Frankfurt in Zoo in back issues of the 70ty years of a german animal magazine. This pitures shows the male Hippo"Toni", who survived the second world war in his outdoor pool,trying to get contact to the female asian elephant"Kithany! But the keepers looks like he's not amused about that..

      I don't think the elephant's too enthusiastic about it either!

      That actually looks like the hippo is taking a chunk out of the elephant's ear!

      in the old biblical zoo in Jerusalem they had the same story with a female elephant (asian) and the male hippo (both kept alone), the elephant used to put her trunk in his mouth. i'll try to get pics of that...

      Hippo appears to have a bent tooth like Harry from Dublin zoo!
