Crocodile Rock: Baby snapper enjoys a ride on the back of a hippo after eating it with a nice and cozy place to rest
This is the funniest moment that baby crocodile caught a gigantic hippo with a rock and lay down on it to rest in the sun.
The cheeky crocodile crawled up the side of the wallowing hippopotamus and lay back on his huge back to relax.
So when the hippopotamus began to move, the young crocodile took the direct hint and remained in its position for 15 minutes before getting off.
But the three-tonne beast apparently seemed annoyed by the three-foot-long creature that ended up taking it to baskets. The moment was captured on camera in the Krᴜger National Park in South Africa by the Richard Millar Field Guild.
‘He must have considered that it was the rock and the water and he just relaxed for a while. They are cold-blooded creatures and need to rest in the sun.
The hippopotamus didn’t seem to care and did nothing to shake off the crocodile. He moved a little but the crocodile remained there for 15 minutes.
Hippopotamuses and crocodiles are rivals in parenthood. A hippopotamus can try to bite a crocodile, but only when its young are threatened. ‘Fᴜe ᴜпa unique sitᴜation in life. I’m pretty sure I’ll get another picture like that for the rest of my life.’
