Baby Hippo

    03 Oct 2003, San Diego, California, United States --- Funani, an African river hippo, gives her female calf Jazi a little nudge on the behind, as they swim inside the 150,000-gallon pool exhibit at the San Diego Zoo. The 260-pound Jazi is three months old and is the third female calf to be born to Funani in the last four years. Baby hippos, which weigh between 80 and 100 pounds at birth, are born swimming and do virtually everything underwater. --- IMAGE BY HANDOUT/REUTERS/CORBIS

      "150,000-gallon pool"
      Almost as big as 2,000,000 cubic miles of fresh water on the earth, Oh! no it isn't, it is tiny in comparison!

      Lovely picture. But they don't swim. They walk along the bottom. See 3rd paragraph in the "Description" section here: en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Hippopotamus
