Hmm.  I'm back from vacation, and while I did see some hippos (including
Spot and Sonia [1]), none of them tried to drag me back.  Better luck next

I especially like the phrase that these two hippos are "Longleat's most
dangerous animal".  But no photos?  And what's with using "hippopotamus"
as plural?

says that it is either "hippopotamuses" or "hippopotami" (reminds me of
the Far Side cartoon of the octopus convention with the MC getting
confused on how to make a plural)
