Hippos (Mother and Son) at the San Diego Zoo

I had a chance to get some pictures of Funani and her just over a year old son Tony at the San Diego Zoo on Saturday.  

Here's Tony.  I overheard a tour guide mentioning that he weighs in at about 900 pounds right now.  When you see him next to his mother, you can tell just how small that is . .  . for a hippo.

Here he is with his mother Funani.
