2/8/2006: Hippo versus antelope











Great set of shots, apparently from photographer Ulrich Brodde, were found at this LiveJournal site via the double-secret Cellar LiveJournal Image Retrieval System.

Awesome shots!

I'm guessing antelope, but I'm not sure what kind. The big hawg looks toothless, so maybe they have anticipated this clash of the titans/morons. No word on how it all turned out so I decided not to wait for Friday. Happy Wednesday.



Clodfobble  Wednesday Feb 8 02:06 PM

I like how the antelope's expression never changes.



wolf  Wednesday Feb 8 02:11 PM

That might be a sable.

They can kill lions, I hear.

You don't think about hippos being aggressive. Rhinos, yes, they have that horn, but hippos? They're ugly cute, they have a funny-sounding name, and they wear tutus and dance in Disney Cartoons.

Which one is the Christian?

The antelope looks like it's reading the back of a cereal box. Completely placid.

Here's the straight dope on that that.... pretty funny.


Carbonated_Brains  Wednesday Feb 8 02:31 PM

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.

Also, the son of a bitch can weigh three metric tonnes.



Carbonated_Brains  Wednesday Feb 8 02:33 PM

One minute too slow =(



Elspode  Wednesday Feb 8 02:57 PM

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.



barefoot serpent  Wednesday Feb 8 03:24 PM

I h8 passive-agressive antelopes.

Except for that 3rd picture - hmm, where have I seen that expression before?

Nose piercing, the easy way.

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

Sun_Sparkz  Wednesday Feb 8 05:45 PM

That antelope thing is SO damn beautiful. and that hippo looks so cute in the first shot.
Awwwwwwwwwww.
It looks like they are in a zoo.. so i am sure the keepers wouldnt let anything too drastic happen.



capnhowdy  Wednesday Feb 8 05:48 PM

A classic example of horny meets fat.

The bittersweet outcome of this combo will be basically forgotten by daybreak.



lumberjim  Wednesday Feb 8 05:58 PM

i bet they're old pals. this is probably a common event.



xoxoxoBruce  Wednesday Feb 8 06:17 PM

I'm with you, LJ.
I think they are playing.



plaguemask  Wednesday Feb 8 06:34 PM

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




Leah  Wednesday Feb 8 10:18 PM

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



xoxoxoBruce  Thursday Feb 9 01:30 AM

Welcome to the Cellar, plaguemask.
I'm always amazed at the depth of information the lurkers burst on the scene with. Collectively, we're pretty smart.
I gotta ask, though.....how did you know that?



footfootfoot  Thursday Feb 9 09:12 AM

never eat anything bigger than your head



tang  Thursday Feb 9 10:07 AM

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.



Griff  Thursday Feb 9 06:50 PM

You slayed me Cap'n.



capnhowdy  Thursday Feb 9 10:17 PM

I was speaking from experimen... I mean experience.

Very nice photos Undertoad! I liked the little duck at the background!

The site is in Russian. If there is anything in specific you would like to know, I can translate for you.


xoxoxoBruce  Sunday Mar 5 10:31 AM

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