Re: Scary and Stunning
Personally I have no desire to see a moose up close. Huge, ill-tempered beasties. Kind of strange about the hippos injuring that many people though.
Not really.. they're very big, very protective of their young and can move surprisingly (too surprisingly for their victims!) quickly. ..and there are a lot of people in Africa.
Fortunately the only moose and hippos we have here are in zoos and wildlife parks. ..must be safe then.
We do get the occasional redback under the toilet seat though... gotta watch out for those littrle critters. Nasty indeed!
