      I dont think this is a really good exbith , but I like your photo! Havent the hippos live in the "bird pool" also? (The pool with capybaras in the South american area, near the flamingo pool)

      During my last visit for the summer, one of the pygmy hippos lived in this enclosure, another in the big african aviary next to this enclosure and the third (the male?) lived in the old bird pond in the south american section as you said (the capybaras lived in the same enclosure as the tapirs).

      You mean with the Storks, Cranes and other small bird?
    • Jodea
      Yes, one of the females live (lived?) in the aviary during the summer (of course indoors wintertime). It's a quite big aviary with african theme including species such as crowned crane, white stork, cattle egrets, vulturine guineafowls and some more. I'll see if I have some pictures of the pygmy hippo in there.
