We find the Hippopotamus to be the most ill tempered from among all the mammals that we sighted in Africa. And we always sensed an uneasy calm in every waterhole in Serengeti national park, where we spotted a pod of Hippos huddled together. One doesn’t have to wait for long at a waterhole to get images of a territorial fight. Very often one of the members of the pod loses its cool and you get to witness the clash of the titans, where they slam their bodies against each other, snort, roar and chase with their mouths wide open in the fight for dominance.
