Hippo eats crocodile.

This is an amazing shot.

Apparently, this young croc swam too close to the herd of hippos and the adults, fearing for their young, surrounded it for gang intimidation. Freaked out by a huge group of big lumps surrounding it (a la gang rapists), it tried to escape by running off on the backs of the hippos.

Alas, it was not to be. Creepy, scary reptiles: 0, fat things everyone thought were mostly docile: 1. Hippos are FIERCE.
