Description

Two big bull hippos battle in the waters of the Selinda Spillway. For an hour they taunt each other, yawning, spraying dung trying to intimidate their opponent by showing their strength, size and dominance. But often taunts would erupt into full blown confrontation where they literally put their money where their mouth is to show who the big boss is in this territory. Note: fatal as this moment looks, amazingly the contender back backed off to eventually accept defeat and float away with just a few flesh wounds.
