In a recent article published by National Geographic about the Cincinnati Zoo's sensationally cute baby hippo Fiona, TRL's own Dr. Elizabeth Anderson is quoted regarding her encounters with hippos in the Mara River!
"For the record, I am terrified of hippos," said National Geographic explorer and Florida International University ecologist Elizabeth Anderson when asked about her own experiences working with hippos. Anderson was once conducting research in Tanzania when a hippo attacked an empty nearby boat.
Congrats to our leader for being recognized as a Nat Geo explorer! You go, girl!
