The week in wildlife – in pictures

A friendly hippo lets a dozen terrapins rest on its back in September, 2014, in Kruger National Park, South Africa. Hippopotamuses are normally aggressive animals but this gentle giant seemed to have a soft spot for the terrapins.

African Giant Snails...... they are known to be a pest in the Eastern parts of Africa. They can often reach length of 8 inches and are considered huge pest as they eat any vegetation they can get their slimy faces on. They lay up to 200 eggs 6 times a year with a 90% survival rate so they can quickly become infested if left uncontrolled. More so, since they found out that these guys can live up to 5-6 years, the oldest one they knew is 10 years!
