Why you should never p1ss off a Hippo

Brilliant pictures, Having spent some time in the Kruger Park and seen these animals up close is really something and when you consider the Hippo has 5tons psi in it's mouth too the old croc wouldn't stand a chance.

There was an episode of a Big Cat program that showed a group of hippoes getting upset at a nearby pride (lions or tigers) and chasing out the adults and killing as many of the cubs that they could find. You don't mess with them.

That would be lions.

To quote Monty Python "A Tiger? In Africa?"

Back in 90 something we were clearing landmines in Mozambique and had cleared a road to a small town which had been cut off in guerrilla teristory for 18 years. On arrival I was met by a small contingency of local bigwigs, the Mayor, Medical Officer, Chief of Police etc. They asked me what I would like as a gift for our work, stressing that they were very poor. I said that to stand on the bank of the nearby Zambezi river (sh it, its big) would be enough for me. They went into a huddle and then suggested that I might prefer to take a local woman as a wife instead. I declined, politely. Eventualy they said I could go to the river, but insisted on giving me an armed soldier to go with me and a lecture. The lecture consisted of being told not to go anywhere near a Hippo, as they were very unpredictable and violent. I was also told that if I went near the waters edge I had to beware of crocs as there were man eaters in them there parts. And for good measure they told me that if I fell in the river there was a good chance that I would be snaffled by a Bull Shark. But neither the shark or the croc would follow me very far, however a pissed off Hippo was quite capable of running surprisingly fast and surprisingly far. They dont smell that good either.
