Wildlife: Some old images

27th December 2013
I was going through some folders of old images the other day, and came across this sequence of a lion pride feeding on a hippo carcass!

Not sure why I hadn't posted them before, but here they are, in all their gory detail...

Photo comment By Flavia: Did the lions kill the hippo? Or did they found him already dead in the river?
Photo comment By Edward Selfe: Yes, they did kill the hippo. It was an old one which had been living in the mud for a long time and at the end of the year, when it was weak, they drowned it in the mud! Pretty gruesome!
