You can detect the mood of the lama by watching its ears. Turned forward shows that the lama is curious and attentive. Wriggling its ears means the lama is disturbed, and if it turns the ears back you better watch out, because it is a threat. The lama might even emphasize the threat by sending vomit into the face of the opponent. (This you will know already if you have read Tintin albums).
The Nandu and the Mara also lives in South America on grass steppe, feed is grass, roots and herbs for both animals, the Nandu also eats insects.

The Okapi is related to the giraffe, and is also called the giraffe of the forest. But it is smaller than the giraffe, and therefore more adapted to living in a rain forest with dense vegetation.
Every Okapi has it's own pattern on the behind, it is as different from animal to animal as fingerprints are for humans. These patterns serve as a great camouflage in the forest.
Only the males have horn, but the female is bigger than the male.

Hippopotamus amphibus, in German called Nilpferd
There is already a page on this site about Hippos and with a lot of great pictures, but here are some more, taken in Copenhagen Zoo.
I think I got some really good pictures, but I was a bit annoyed because just after I placed the camera in my pocket, the pig male hippo almost jumped up out of the water. It would have been such a spectacular picture, but alas.
