The beach towel is really just for laying on inasmuch as it is too big and heavy to put around your body, which is just fine. The artwork in it is beautiful. I can't wait to use it.

Wow - I didn't realise it was going to be that big! It's a gift for a young member of the family - I think he'll be thrilled as he's a tractor fanatic at 6 years old. A practical gift too. The towel has a smoother upper side so it'll be more comfortable to sit on at the beach. It seems to have a thick absorbent power so no usual skinny beach towel.

Artist's Description

This good-looking fella (we’ll assume it’s a fella) is truly an eating machine. The hippo spends most of its waking hours eating. No surprise that the average weight of an adult hippo is 3,000 pounds, third in the line for largest mammal on earth (behind the elephant and rhino). Luckily it only gets rid of all that food in the water!! The hippo is herbivorous (eats plant life), but, despite that, kills more humans in Africa than any other animal except for the mosquito. This is because not only are they ill-tempered, they are very territorial. I took this photo from a boat on the Chobe River in northern Botswana. Featured by groups: 1.
