Elephant vs Hippo

This is fun (unless you were the hippo) http://blog.africageographic.com/africa-geographic-blog/wildlife/wildlife-and-nature/elephant-fury-for-this-mother-hippo/.

The comments thread has some suggestion that teh photos aren’t real. I once saw a hippo chased by an Elephant out of – and around – a water hole in Hwange NP so I can believe such behaviour is quite possible. But I don’t know enough about spotting a faked picture to know if the pics might not be legit….

Anyone have any thoughts?

    I’ve seen elephants doing this to rhinos and killing them. Not in person but on national geographic. So I believe it, elephants are assholes.

    This looks entirely legit to me from a photographic perspective. Great shots!

    I’ve seen elephants do some pretty nasty stuff out there. They are rude bullies sometimes. And the images look totally real to me – no reason at all from my perspective to doubt them…
