These are the largest land animals in Africa, and in the world too – elephants, rhinos and hippos! These animals can weigh up to 5 tons. All three of them are extremely dangerous to humans. It is up to them, suffer the most tourists. Do not try to approach them! They are so well seen.
They are very big, very strong and they have a bad temper!
Elephants, Rhinos and Hippos – Largest Animals in Africa:
Let’s start with the hippos. They just look like hulking thick! In fact, they run 60 km / h!
And they have very powerful jaws that can break the backbone of a large crocodile. That is why they live next to each other and do not disturb. Hippos – not predators and crocodiles are not at risk.
Rhinos. It is their love! In adults, there is no natural enemies. They are powerful, and they have a terrible temper.
In the months spent in Africa is the only animal that tried to attack me. More precisely, not even me, and to my huge Land Cruiser, which does not seem so large a number of the female rhino. And the rhinoceros weighs more …
Unfortunately these animals on the ground remains extremely small. They are considered an endangered species. On the 2000 square kilometers of the reserve Masai Mara left their 56 pieces.
Blame poachers who kill these giants for their horns.
And, of course, an elephant. The biggest and incredibly strong! They are also killed for horns, but, fortunately, rangers, scientists and wildlife defenders managed to stop the reduction of livestock numbers through active struggle not only with the poachers, but also seeking a ban the sale of ivory around the world, especially in Asia.
