"There was a terrible, sulphurous smell, like rotten eggs, and a tremendous pressure against my chest," Paul Templer said, recalling the moment he realized he had been swallowed by a hippopotamus.

"I went straight down his throat. It smelled like death," Templer said in the Tribune. And yet, when the hippo "bit into my lungs he missed my heart. He missed my liver and kidneys."

Look at those fangs! I always thought hippo beasts were vegetarians. Like manatees with feet.
Why did it try to swallow him?

Are you ready for this:
The hippo is responsible for more human fatalities in Africa than any other large animal. Male hippos actively defend their territories which run along the banks of rivers and lakes. Females have also been known to get extremely aggressive if they sense anyone coming in between their babies, who stay in the water while she feeds on the shore. Hippos can run at speeds of over 20 miles an hour and they have enormous jaws which host up to 20 inch canines.

Indeed!

You're welcome. Was hoping to make this place a bit more 'Offbeat', than it has been as of late.

Mr. Templar deserves to be recognized for his experience.

Perhaps he could bestowed with the title of Knight Templar?

(and yeah, feel free to use the flame judgeit. Pun postings deserve to burn in the fires of Hell.)

Close enough to get a lung jammed into a spine.

Not to mention the strong sulphurous smell wafting down one's nose.

Close enough..babe?
