Hippos. Going to sleep in the wilderness and hearing a hippo’s grunting noise is the most relaxing thing for me. Hippos are cheeky animals and they’ve got attitude. With this particular little pod, I’ve attempted to convey some of that character. They are altogether in the water and are relatively relaxed. But there’s still some attitude. The one putting up his head, he’s definitely checking us out.
