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
time!

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?

http://dictionary.reference.com/browse/hippopotamus

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)
