The dear little Impalas in the Delta flood plains in beautiful Botswana are a top food source for lions, cheetahs, wild dogs, hyenas, crocodiles and humans – you name it. The people of Botswana love them cooked slowly and gently on a spit-roast. And so do I. The taste is divine.
I snapped this seemingly gentle Hippopotamus and baby on the Zambezi River during the afternoon in Africa: Ungainly as it is, the hippopotamus is the world’s deadliest mammal, killing an estimated 500 people per year in Africa. Hippos are bloody aggressive creatures, and they have fucking sharp teeth. You would not want to get stuck under one; at up to 2,750kg they can crush a human to death. But they do love their youngsters.
