My World Tuesday: Pigmy Hippos




http://showyourworld.blogspot.com/

My nephew Thomas got to travel to Malaysia and Singapore for his 5th birthday. Here he is in the Singapore zoo with a pigmy hippo in the background. He doesn't look too happy because the humidity and heat was too much for him.

What a handsome your man your nephew is!! And I don't blame him for looking a bit grumpy about the heat -- I would, too! But the little hippos are cute! Love your photo and thanks for sharing, Ann! Have a great week!

Hi, Ann!

That is really a huge Pigmy Hippo.

He does not look too happy... the hippo - even a pigmy - must be weighing him down ;-P

Not only your nephew can't stand the weather over here. It's been extremely hot now a days during the day and night too. It wasn't this hot during the past. I think climax changed.
