    Shows a male figure bathing up to his neck in a lake. He looks nervously over to a hippopotamus that is bathing nearby. The caption insists that 'Acclimatisation is all very well in its way—but it is no joke, on rising to the surface, after taking a header, to find a lively hippopotamus as your companion of the bath'.
