    Hi all,
    I have not been very active during the last months, too busy in the bush... I am back home now for a few weeks and getting ready to go to CAR again..

    I came across some unusual scenes of wildlife in Tanzania that I filmed and photographed.

    THE WARTHOG FIGHT:
    I was sitting by a waterhole, after an hour 57 warthogs were by the water !!! Too many!!! The big boars started to intimidate each other, dancing stiff on their legs, throwing dust and fight. When they hit their head, it makes a big KLONK.... Very cool to see how they behave.

    Here is the video.




    HIPPOPOTAMUS:
    The Selous is one of the last kingdom of the big beast, I don't know how many thousands they are, but keep your rifle with you when you go behind a tree !!!
    I notice one thing !!! Sure we all know that but it was the first time I saw it. They drink clear water... Did you see that once? One big bull left the pool and went to the Stream close by and drunk for about 5 mn...

    LIONS FROM SELOUS:
    You all know the rule in Tanzania for a trophy lion: 6 years old. I can tell you the population is increasing fast and we see some beautiful male.

    Calling Cape Buffalo:




    ELEPHANT:
    Despite the heavy ivory poaching (TZ lost 35000 elephant during the last 2 years), elephant hunting is still very good with some nice bulls with long ivory.

    Christophe,
    As always, fantastic photographs!!!!! Thank you so much for posting them. Some pictures just have that special quality about them that seems to actually transport you in time to when they where taken. You have the ability to capture that! Don't be a stranger to AH. I look forward to you posts and articles!

    Thanks for posting the videos and pictures. It is fun to watch you call buff. The picture of the croc missing the top half a jaw was a first for me. It is hard to tell in the pic but he looks to be emaciated. Did he look like he was able to feed? Was he able to submerge without drowning?

    All the best.

    bluey, that is the picture I was asking about. It looks like the croc lost the top part of the jaw in a fight. I have been told if you shoot a croc in the nostril area they can't stay down or otherwise they will drown. (They have no way of blocking their airway) Looking at his back he doesn't seem to have any mass and that is why I was asking if he could feed. If you can't submerge it is hard to hunt and you are forced to scavenge or poach other crocs kills to survive from what I understand. Very unique picture.

    Amazing photos and I loved the videos. Gives me a whole new appreciation for animals I thought I would never be interested in hunting. Thank you for sharing. I only wish there was less music (though appropriate) and I could hear more of the actual sounds of the animals......such as when the warthogs were sparring. Tanzania is definitely calling my name!
