Being taken advantage of…

Ever get the feeling that your kindness is being abused, Mr. Hippo? Just asking…

This temporary island being used (abused really, don’t you think?) by sunbathing Marsh and Serrated Hinged Terrapins was seen at the Kruger National Park‘s Nwaswitshaka Waterhole on the S65 road between Skukuza and Pretoriuskop in May 2019.

    I can sympathise with that hippo… but hey, all he has to do is sink… if I tried to sink to get the freeloaders off my back I’d drown!! Wha ha ha!!

      En nogtans het hy nie, Dina – ek sou dit doen net om spiteful te wees as ek die seekoei was. Ek het n redelike ruk gewag om die foto te kry voor ek besef het van die skilpaaie se doppe is al droog gebak – hierdie Atlantis gaan nie sink nie…

    You know I love these guys–they are right up there with the elephants as my favorites of all the photos you post. This is a riot! But that is one heck of a lot of turtles….
