It's a tough life for a hippo mother

A hippopotamus and her young a rest at their enclosure at the zoo in Berlin

A hippopotamus mother wears the exasperated expression we think we've seen on our own mother once or twice. 

The two young hippos, born over the past few months at the Berlin Zoo, are the first to have been born there in a number of years.  They'll eventually weigh up to two tons!
