The Weather sKwirl™ meets a rare pink hippo

Just as The Weather sKwirl™ is a rare pink version of his standard kin — this pink baby hippo found in Kenya is equally rare.

From Fox News:

On a recent expedition to the Masai Mara in Kenya, nature photographers Will and Matt Burrard-Lucas spotted the unusual beast. Pink hippos have previously been seen on only a handful of occasions, largely in Uganda, they said.

In a post on their site, Will Burrard-Lucas described the encounter:

“After a rather uneventful morning, we stopped on the banks of the Mara River for a picnic breakfast. It was then that we came across a truly exceptional individual… just as we started to tuck into our breakfast, we looked up and gawked, open-mouthed, as a pink hippopotamus emerged from the river!”

The pair dropped their breakfasts and reached for their cameras, capturing a series of pictures of the unusual beast.
