Well, that doesn't even make sense. Looks more like elephantiasis to me.

/Or lipedema.

Mister Peejay:
Yaxe: Hippos ain't no joke. The meanest mammal who lives in the waters of rivers of Africa is not to be screwed with - they kill waaaay more people every year than crocodiles do.

"Even the crocodiles don't fark with hippos."

Crocs prefer dead animals anyway.

There was a hippocalypse a few years back in the zambezi, due to drought condensing and stirring up natural anthrax in the soil. Crocs, like vultures, are immune to anthrax. The crocs were mighty happy with all the bloated hippo carcasses.

I canoed the zambezi last year. Hippos every 1000 meters or so. They mostly just stare at you in an annoyed fashion. My sis kept hyperventilating when we got stuck in shallows next to them. Personally, I didn't see what she was freaking out about, but she probably knew more about their danger than I did, since she lived there.

Our guide did watch a man get mauled by one at night, which is when they're most dangerous. He said it was "grim".
