This is Douglas, a happy hippo cared for by Steve and Anna Tolan in their wildlife rehabilitation center. Douglas loves to give kisses to those willing and he is good friends with a ferocious crocodile that lives in the same lagoon as he.
This ship, the Eduard Bohlen, ran ashore in 1909. Today, it still sits, a quarter of a mile away from the waters edge. There are many shipwrecks along this coastline, and are best viewed by safari plane, from above.
