Hippo Surfs Waves After Beach Is Left Deserted By Lockdown
This is the incredible moment a hippo was caught on camera enjoying a dip in the ocean and surfing the waves on a deserted lockdown beach in Africa. Usually the beautiful stretch of sand near the Elephant Reserve in Mozambique would be busy with tourists and surfers. But with the Covid19 outbreak gripping the world the wildlife is making a big comeback in the area close to the South African border. Fish, monkeys, bird life and even the largest animals have all been seen returning the paradise-like seafront. Thiago Fonseca, from Mozambique, caught this amazing moment on film on April 21 – which coincidentally was the same date as Earth Day which celebrates the natural world. Thiago, 46, a creative director at an advertising agency, said he first heard about the unusual beachgoer from a friend.
