Tug O' War...

Check out this link for a couple amazing pictures of a recent tug o' war for a baboon between a crocodile and a leopard. This happened near Nsefu, a Robin Pope camp in South Luangwa, Zambia:

This link will only be good until about July 05th, and then it may be viewed by going to the index of the "It's Monday" section and pressing the June 28th link.

I would have loved to have been a witness to both this and the other action photos shown in this link showing a mother hippo chasing off all the crocs that were unfortunately feeding on her baby.

Just a couple weeks removed and I already miss the South Luangwa!

Great photos!!! Thanks for the link.

Also loved the narrative and photos describing their efforts to remove the 4 meter long python from their vehicle. Can just imagine their consternation as the "home-made" python removal remedies did not work (ammonia, smoke, rope).

I remember seeing a wildlife program about mambas that stated that it was not unusual for snakes, being cold-blooded creatures, to seek the warmth provided by an engine block!!
