The Surfing Hippos of Gabon's Loango National Park

Body surfing hippos! What could possibly be better? These pictures seem to come from this National Geographic feature of 2004; people who have been there since have not had as much luck documenting the semi-mythical surfing hippos. It may be that the hippos are actually using the ocean current to ease their trip home from one of their feeding grounds to where they like to sleep.
