This is my first challenge in so long. I hope to get to start participating more again. I truly have missed it.

By the way... this is Uma. She is incredibly social, and actually seems to enjoy interacting with people. There was someone above her huge pool that was giving her apples -- her favorite treat. Who knew!

It makes me so proud to have nervously jumped back into a challenge after so long and win. I am reeeeeeealllly happy today :) THANK YOU!!!

This is truly incredible. Welcome back and a huge congrats on the blue. Is this an optical illusion or is this hippo really in a pool containing all those beautiful fish?

Oh my WORD!!

I am SO happy that this is yours, my friend!

I thought that she must be an exhibit in a museum.

I'm amazed to now assume that this is real and a live capture.

I give this a 17 vote!
