Monster of the Day #890

OK, I’m pushing the ‘monster’ thing a bit, but c’mon, look at that thing, it’s awesome.

    Don’t they say that hippos kill more people than crocodiles? Sounds monstrous to me.

  • Pretty sure a hippo is the definition of a monster.

  • Flangepart

    Got that right! Territorial and big, they ain’t cute to folks live near ’em…kinda like being in shooting range of a trailer part.
    According to the late Peter Hataway Capstick, who should know, they are one of the most dangerous herbivores around.

    The game of hungry, hungry hippos sucks when the hippos are real…

  • bgbear_rnh

    The hippos probably got annoyed at him for being late.

  • Rock Baker

    Is that a hippo? What movie is this from?

  • bgbear_rnh

    it ain’t Fantasia ;)

  • Rodford Smith

    Supposedly, the herbivore most dangerous to photographers is the rhinoceros. It vaguely sees this big, glassy eye staring at it and charges on general principles.

  • Rob Gaczol

    I think that might be from one of those Italian sword & sandal flicks.
