Hippo Hunting at Night
We got to go out twice looking for hippos. The first time we did not see any hippos because we went to the wrong area of town but the second night we were successful. The night time pictures we took did not work out at all so we used some that Elder Polman gave us. Hippos spend most of the day in the water and come out at night to eat the lawns and other vegetation around St Lucia. These big fellow are often found roaming the streets around 9:00 at night. It was quite a thrill to see these massive short legged beasts. Can you imagine coming out of your house at night and coming face to face with a hippo. I though javelina were a nuisance.
