Hippos fight

Photo taken in the Serengeti National Park, north of the park in a place called the pool of hippos. In this natural river pool a lot of semi-submerged hippos spend the hottest hours of the day avoiding the sun burn their skin piles up. In such small spaces, and taking into account the territorial aggressive hippos, fights and quarrels are inevitable.
