2/8/2006: Hippo versus antelope
Clodfobble Wednesday Feb 8 02:06 PM
I like how the antelope's expression never changes.

That might be a sable.

The danger of a hippo is that its teeth are razor sharp on the sides, and it's generally accepted that more people die of hippos in Africa than any other mammal.

One minute too slow =(

The last shot looks like the horned creature is about to ram one of the horns through the hippo's mouth and out the left nostril. Ouch.
Carbonated_Brains Wednesday Feb 8 03:07 PM
Based on the scars all over the hippo's side, I'd say this is a common event.

There are lots of great/interesting shots at this site. I wish I could read whatever language it is in.

A classic example of horny meets fat.

The antelope's a bull nyala. I understand the confusion, though. It does look quite a lot like a greater kudu.

I'm sure they are playing, the ducks in the last photo don't look too disturbed at all, play time for all. Nice photo's

I'm with LJ too. I think the Hippo is just a youngster and they're playing. If a full-grown Hippo with a full complement of teeth got his jaws on the antelope's neck it would be over for the antelope. Hippos are so nasty that in the wild full-grown Crocodiles avoid them.

Thanks, vocalperk. Not at the moment but stick around, we run into Russian sites fairly often.
