Epic Wildlife Battle for the Ages: Hippos Vs. Crocodiles

The amazing battle happened in the Luangwa River in Zambia’s South Luangwa National Park. Wildlife photographer Marc Mol captured the incredible breathtaking moments.

Hippos and crocodiles are two of the fearsome creatures that live in the waterways of Africa. In this battle, there were around 140 crocodiles against a herd of hippos. The warriors of each side fought bravely, blood was shed and one hippo paid the ultimate price.

This is a battle of epic proportions.
