Posted on October 20, 2019October 19, 2019 by Tuxedo Sophisticated CatSunbathing These hippos were sunbathing on the banks of the Mara River just below our Wild-Eye Camp. We passed by the remnants of this hippo by the side of the road every day. Rate this:Share this:TwitterFacebookEmailLinkedInLike this:Like Loading... Related

So, a nude beach . . .
The skeleton seems odd. Specifically, the fact the hippo died (and decomposed) with its mouth wide open.
Do you know if they posed it?
I don’t think it was posed. There are a lot of lions in the area and it’s not unusual for lions to kill hippos. We saw a lot of remains along the side of the road. This was near our camp and we would regularly see hippos walking through the area.
Actually, I just noticed the piece of wood stuck in the jaw. That’s probably what’s keeping it open.
Look at how pink their bellies are and that skeleton???? wow!
