COMM: Hippopotamus, the most dangerous mammal in Africa. COMM: This brutal battle between two male hippos in South Africa’s iSimangaliso Wetland
Park was captured by a safari group at the end of a long day. COMM: Hippos have very short tempers and if initial vocal intimidation doesn’t work,
they fight it out until one submits or is killed. COMM: The dominant male hippo attacks a younger bull, lifting him out of the water and pushing
him back down in a display of supremacy. COMM: It’s thought that tensions are high as there are three baby hippos in this pod
and it’s not uncommon for younger bulls to kill the new arrivals. COMM: The younger male was badly injured during the fight and he’s not been seen since.
