Hippos face danger everywhere they turn. Besides being hunted by their natural predators, they’re poached for their meat, fat and teeth, and they’re losing their habitat due to deforestation and human development. That might explain why this hippo has climbed to the top of a conveniently-placed ladder, stretching up to the sky and keeping her out of harm’s way.
