🦛 Great Quotes and Boats

“The hippos, irritated but unafraid, snorted at the men in their small, fragile boat. The huge riverine animals, which might charge at any moment or simply surface, easily upending their boat, were a genuine danger, even more so than the crocodiles, which, Burton wrote, “terrified by the splash of oars, waddled down with their horrid claws, dinting the slimy bank, and lay like yellow logs, measuring us with small, malignant, green eyes, deep set under warty brows.””
