I have seen pictures and documentaries of the great Hippos but never saw them live let alone close. A visit to the Putra Jaya Wetlands accorded me the opportunity to come face-to-face with the giant size yet gentle mammal for the first time. There were 3 of them here. Would strongly recommend blog visitors to make a visit there. And bring along the family for a weekend with nature. Entrance to the wetlands is free of charge and almost all spots are accessible by car.
