Death awaits something here!
Crocodiles are found primarily in freshwater rivers that have dense vegetation cover. In Chobe National Park they can also be found in large lakes. Crocodiles are most at home in the water, but are able to travel on land.
Crocodiles are carnivores. They use their sharp teeth for catching and holding their prey. Their diet is thought to consist primarily of fish and small aquatic invertebrates however adults opportunistically feed on larger prey if it becomes available including humans.
Killing is hard work.
Hippos are the most feared animals in southern Africa. Each year more people are killed by them than by all the other animals together.
Hippos watch strictly over their territories and threaten anybody invading it by what looks like yawning. If the invader does not withdraw, they usually attack without any further hesitation. Smaller boats are particularly at risk, because a hippo can easily topple it over, and as their front teeth are as sharp as razorblades, chances of survival are slim.
Waiting for the right opportunity to steal!
Vervet monkeys are found all over Botswana, Namibia, Zimbabwe, Swaziland, Mozambique and South Africa. They have a highly developed system of communication and they tend to spend a lot of time on the ground.
At several camps in Botswana these little fellows got into the truck and cars and pulled everything out that they could eat or steal. If tents were not sealed properly, these velvet monkeys would make themselves at home and destroy anything that they could lay their hands on! Do not leave food in your tent if you are camping!!!!
