Summary
Strong, fast, and semiaquatic, the hippo is one of Africa's biggest wildlife management challenges. The use of tranquilizer darts is nearly impossible, as a threatened hippo will dash straight for the nearest body of water and dig in. If the animal has been tranquilized, it can drown before the drug wears off, hampering the efforts of wildlife specialists. But Dr. Brady Barr has a new idea - he wants to see if a net will hamper the hippo enough to keep it out of water and make the capture safer. First, he pays a visit to Florida to test his idea out on wily Florida swamp gators, and it's a complete success. He then packs up his nets and heads for Malawi, where we'll see if his team can rewrite the rules of hippo capture!
