The Kazinga Channel: Hippo Paradise

In the savannah of western Uganda, Africa, there's a place known as "Hippo Paradise". There are more than 5,000 hippos living there. Females spend 7 years caring for their calves. They not only carry their young piggyback-style through the water they live in, but they suckle their young beneath its surface. This program features unique footage of hippo behavior never before caught on tape. A 4-ton hippo leaping as gracefully as a dolphin must be seen to be believed. A spectacular scene in which a hippo confronts an elephant is another awe-inspiring moment from this memorable program.
