Complete Mission "The ultimate big mouth....You know who!" Mission 003
This can take some time. You will need to go over to the Hippopotamus pool in front of your camping ground and wait. It may take some time for one of the hippos to actually yawn. Be careful not to be seen by one of them cause they will charge. Try crouching down behind the bushes with a good camera view. Once the hippo is relaxed one will yawn. Be quick though, cause they yawn fast and it will be a bit before they do it again.
Each picture gets "graded" and depending on how the picture looks depends on how much money you get or if it will even count. Try not to use zoom to much because distance is a good factor in scoring. Also,make sure the angle is good too, to far to one side or the other doesn't help your score at all. Try to be close and just about dead center with the pictures.
