Dirty Work

A newborn hippo was keeping close to its mother in the shallows of Lake Kariba, Zimbabwe, when a large bull made a beeline for them.

He chased the mother, then seized the calf in his huge gape, clearly intent on killing it. All the while, the distraught mother looked on.

Infanticide among hippos is rare but may result from the stress caused through overcrowding when their day-resting pools dry out.
