In the middle of Zambia’s South Luangwa National Park, there formed an epic battle. Two vicious tribes clashed, starting a war that photographer Marc Mol was lucky to witness. Blood was shed and the warriors fought for their lives. It was a battle of epic proportions… and beasts.
It wasn’t a human war, but an animal one.
A herd of hippos attacked a swarming pit of crocodiles after they killed one of their own.
Soon, however, the herd realized they couldn’t help their fallen friend.
So they turned around…
Leaving the snarling reptiles to their feast.
But seeing this scene from above?
Those hippos had a fighting chance.
Life goes on.
But maybe not for long…
(H/T Daily Mail) The food chain is a vicious reality. We are lucky that over the centuries we found a way to exit the chain and exist without threat of predators. Our ancestors weren’t so lucky, they probably fought in battles just like the one you see above. Nature is awe-inspiring. Share this incredible battle. It’s breathtaking.
