I can't believe she thought a sea lion would roar at something he thought was a fish rather than a rival.

People need to understand and take precautions when dealing with any animal of some sort that is not naturally domesticated. There's hundreds and hundreds of stories of people petting what they think are 'cute' animals, such as the hippopotamus, cape buffalo, etc. and getting attacked unknowingly. It is best to respect the animals, and not badger them, because most stories will end up like this.

Obviously whoever did that had never seen a hippo yawning before. That nearly made me have a heart attack the first time I saw it. But speaking of hippos, I've just recalled reading something about Pablo Escobar (a now dead Colombian drug lord) having a private menagerie that was left unattended after he was shot to pieces. The only animals that are still alive there are the hippos, which had originally been imported from a zoo in Louisiana. All the other animals died on the estate or were sent to zoos. The hippos didn't die of old age, and their aggression made them untransportable. There were originally only four of them, but they multiplied into a herd of what is now comprised of nineteen individuals. The fact they've been reproducing and one of them was shot while raiding a farm some three miles away from the estate, makes them quite possibly the largest invasive species on the planet. Sadly, they'll have to be culled soon or they'll create terrible issues for the locals.

Visitors at Rajkot zoological park will soon get to see one more specie of deers. Five hog deers, two males and three females, were brought to the city zoo from Punjab.
"In March last year, Rajkot zoo had given one pair of lion to the Punjab zoo and we had an agreement to get other animals in exchange. So, we have brought five Hog deers. Currently, they are kept in captivity and will be on display for public viewing at the zoo," superintendent, Rajkot zoological park, R K Hirpara said.
According to officials, the city zoo has a tiger, leopards, crocodiles and black bucks among others. Lion constitute the highest numbers in the zoo. Rajkot Zoological Park covers 55.37 hectares area which is undulating with ridges and valleys, rocky outcrops and well drained, surrounded by two big lakes Lalpari and Randarda.
"Within the next four months new species like sloth bear, four-horned antelope and chinkara will be brought from Punjab zoo to the city," Hirpara added.
In order to attract visitors, battery-operated vehicles have been introduced at the zoo to take visitors around.

TWO duelling bull elephants clash in a bloody bid to impress the ladies
The animal â€“ thought to have mostly died out roughly 4,000 years ago â€“ was
apparently filmed wading through a river in the freezing wilds of Siberia.
The jaw-dropping footage was caught by a government-employed engineer last
summer in the Chukotka Autonomous Okrug region of Siberia, it is claimed.
ANIMAL previously thought extinct apparently filmed crossing icy river
He filmed the elephant-sized creature as it struggled against the racing
Its hair matches samples recovered from mammoth remains regularly dug up from
the permafrost in frozen Russia.
The official was reportedly in the area surveying for a planned road.
Paranormal writer Michael Cohen said: "Rumours of a handful of mammoths still
kicking around in the vast wilderness of Siberia have been circulating for
decades and occasionally sightings by locals have occurred.
"Siberia is an enormous territory and much of it remains completely
unexplored and untouched by humans. "
Woolly mammoths roamed the Earth 10,000 years ago during the last Ice Age.
A small pocket remained on and around Wrangel Island, off the coast of
Siberia, and these did not die out until 3,500 years ago.
Mr Cohen, 41, added: "It is highly possible that a number of species,
extinct elsewhere, survive in the area.
"If surviving woolly mammoths were found in Siberia, it could run against
Russia's plans to further develop and exploit the area's considerable
"It would be potentially one of the greatest discoveries ever."
But viewers are divided on the nature of the animal seen in the video. Some
have dismissed it as a hoax while others reckon it is an elephant lost in
the Siberian wilderness. The third theory is the sighting shows a bear
eating a huge fish. What do you think?
