Mangrove trees are quite an amazing plant as it grows directly in saltwater with strong tidal variation. In order to survive this hostile environment the Mangrove tree has barriers in the roots that filter out salt. Mangrove seeds float and it can therefore be dispersed over a large area of coast line.

The hippo largely grazes at night, during the day it normally rest in the water although here a large group of well fed hippos are sleeping on the river bank of the Mara river. Looking quite relaxed and comfortable.
