first impressions :
1)- another example of a photograph with no reference scale , how bloody hard is it for " investigators " to put a rule or identifiable object in
fram for scale prposes ?
are they all idiots
2)- how old is the print ? it looks lke there is vegitayion growing in it - my opoinion is that it was created durnig a rainy season , probally 2
years ago - and has since been baked hard in the mud ,
further more it is possible that the rain / sun cycle has distorted the size / stape of it - you can see clear cracks and evidence that the edges are
3 )- i dought it was origionally an elephant print - elephant toes are more numerous and less pronounced
though i cannot remember what a hippo foot profile is , the rhino is a possible culprit - they have distinct toes
in conclusion - without far more information it is simply an annecdotal discovery of an unspecified print
i am very leery of the claims of massive dinosaurs and other cryptids - but sub saharan affrica has huge tracts [ bigger than the uk ] that are so
poorly expolored / maped that a un catalogued species could still be extant there .
the congo would swallow 10 times over the habitat that hid the south asian deer sub species that was recently discovered [ that was 24" tall ]
a creature at least double that could easily be hidden in affrica
