There is a world somewhere between reality and fiction. Although ignored by many, it is very real and so are those living in it. This forum is about the natural world. Here, wild animals will be heard and respected. The forum offers a glimpse into an unknown world as well as a room with a view on the present and the future. Anyone able to speak on behalf of those living in the emerald forest and the deep blue sea is invited to join.

The color, the blurry face and head positioning seem fishy to me.

Did a reverse search of the photo... Shutterstock has a lot of other snaps of the fight from different angles. Described:
African buffalo fighting, bloody fight in Lake nakuru, Kenya.

The photographer just overdid the filters.

@Rishi :

About #441: amazing ! We could believe to see some artworks by Simon Combes (1940-2004), an African fauna painter having resided most of his life in Kenya... Samples:

Hippo vs earths greatest predators
Watch the Amazing video here: https://roaring.earth/hippo-vs-earths-greatest-predators/

The hippo is Africa’s undisputed most dangerous land animal.
While they may appear at first glance to be slow, gentle creatures that spend their time relaxing in swamps, the reality is far more intense. Almost nothing stands in the way of an angry hippo — not even the most formidable predators on Earth, from lions to crocodiles to wild dogs … or humans.

*This image is copyright of its original author


So what’s behind their remarkable power?
Firstly, hippos weigh in at more than 3,000 pounds and reach lengths of up to 17 feet, making them truly gigantic. Add some self-sharpening teeth that can grow to almost 2 feet long, and a jaw that can stretch to 180 degrees and deliver an incredible bite force, and you have a powerful animal that can cause some serious damage.
Moreover, hippos are also highly territorial animals that become extremely aggressive when threatened. While they have long been considered herbivores because they primarily feed on vegetation, they have no problem killing and eating other animals like impala, wildebeest and even other hippos. In fact, they are responsible for killing approximately 500 humans in Africa each year.
Despite their size, these massive creatures are far from slow. They can move through water at a full gallop and on land, often fearlessly charge other predators at speeds of up to 30 miles per hour — faster than even Usain Bolt!
