I tried to post my Hippo battle from my latest Kruger trip self drive report on post #9.

Not sure why the link will not copy and paste.

Their is a series of about 10 pics of Hippo's fighting out of the water.

This was a first time ever for, not only myself but all the guides at Porini Mara camp. Fascinating to see. The whole thing took 2.5 hours from start to finish.

We had to depart for a while as not everyone just wanted to sit and watch so we returned to see the final completion.

 

There was a major readjustment of position at one point as the Tommie's horn went through the skin which you can see in one shot.

 

The next morning he/she had gone, with only flattened grass to show anything had happened at all.

 

@JakeGC  not bad eh?

Wow, what a sighting!

 

Hope the python survives, and doesn't suffer any other punctures.

What an absolutely incredible sighting. I bet the camp was buzzing after that!

What a fantastic series @wilddog! I hope that is an indication of the quality of sightings from your recent trip... I recall a few years back @Bugs had a similar sighting on his old farm.

Great photos @wilddog - how fortunate you were to see such a predator consuming such comparatively large prey.

Thanks everyone. It was pretty special. Photos are not brilliant, nor edited in any way, but displayed as taken. No doubt I could have improved them but felt that the news of the sighting was the priority. Will do a a bit of enhancing for my Trip Report (when It comes!!) and add some rather shaky video that I took at the time

I too wish the python luck with digestion.  Quite a meal and quite a sighting!
