FOWChallenge-Corpse

~~~~~

Depending on which definition/dictionary you read,

a corpse is primarily that of a human and not animal. 

However some definitions contain both human and animal. 

Not having many photos of animal corpses

and none of a human corpse, 

I have opted for the animal variety.

Part of an elephant skeleton

judging by its size and teeth.

Not all that difficult to find skeletal remains

scattered around the African countryside.

And I think that mound in the water

was a recently alive hippopotamus.

I was more interested getting past it

than taking a close look.

A highlight of our first African Safari was this.

Standing under Tembo’s head.

Tembo was then a six ton,

thirty year old elephant.

When he was younger he became ill-tempered

just after his mother was killed, or died,

and he had killed six hippopotamus.

With this knowledge it did take some courage

to step in under his trunk and tusks.
