Hippos are not usually known for their subtlety but this hulking beast appears to be using stealth techniques while he sets his sights on his prey.<br />
<br />
The large mammal submerged itself before seemingly gliding gracefully head first out of the water.<br />
<br />
For a moment, its large head appeared camouflaged in the brown water and even looked more like a stalking crocodile than a cumbersome hippo.<br />
<br />
In the event, its 'prey' was a nearby boat full of sight-seers which quickly made off when the skipper finally spotted the creature from the deep.
