Looks like this Hippo Mamma is taking it upon herself to teach her calf the proper way to nom on yummy water-weeds.
Sometimes the safest place to hide is in mama's shadow. Especially when your mama is a big, fierce Hippopotamus.
Personally I prefer Pygmy Hippos, not only because they are super squee, but because they are much easier to carry around with you in your backpack.
