Farewell Monifa by TVD-Photography Farewell Monifa by TVD-Photography
This actually happened a little while ago but because my PC was out of action for a while I couldn't get to my photos of her :( Monifa passed away due to an acute haemolytic crisis – which occurs from the rapid destruction of large numbers of red blood cells. There wasn't much they could do to save her :(

I found this photo, she was a very happy and active hippo and liked to run around. It was hard to get a good shot of her. Still a bit blurry but it shows her playfulness I think :nod:

Pic taken at Melbourne Zoo. Print available upon request.
