Wild Tanzania: River Battlefront 1x50

In East Africa, following Tanzania’s waterway inland, two mighty giants share a home: the hippopotamus and the Nile crocodile. Both creatures need water, and when parts of the river slowly evaporate, wet spaces are at a premium. While hippos and other animals stagnate in crowded pools to keep cool, crocs have a different strategy for avoiding the oppressive heat: they dig caves as shelters in the riverbank. Some of these are ten meters deep and house a score of crowded of crocodiles. River Battlefront shows that while hippos and crocs are tolerant of each other, there is an ongoing battle to survive the clashes within their own species.
