A Giant Elephant Charged A Hippo And Her Baby. What This Mother Did Is Just Incredible.

The picture of this violent scene and mother’s heroism, taken by photographer Rian van Schalkwyk, in Windhoek, Namibia will make you catch your breath. A hippo and her round, innocent calf got a little too close to a bull elephant that was grazing nearby. The scuffle that took place between the two enormous animals was jaw-dropping.


It just goes to show that even animals that big would do backflips for their young (even if they didn’t mean to).
