The odd thing about the Pom Pom infections is that they just don't go away. Even a week after leaving Pom Pom a simple …
... first, while the bachelors sit on the periphery eyeing the food and the females enviously.
We were all fascinated to see these bizarre animals up close, having only glimpsed them through the trees on the river.
