These hippos are in a Russian act belonging to Tofik Akhundov. He tours it with various circuses throughout Russia and the Far East. The animals were obtained from an Israeli Safari Park. They are one male and two females named Zlat, Yana,and Gida.

In addition to the "long mount" they do roll-overs and a "one crawling over another" turn.

The lady in the photo is Tofik's wife Ludmila Akhundov.

In 1990 they presented the hippo Zusha here on RBBB-Red.
