What I plan on Studying: I hope to observe behavioral relationships between adolecent and adult bull hippos, and to record any diferences in communication between herds in different river systems.
I also hope to observe stotting behavior in antelope and note coorrelations between predator and prey displays/hunting techniques.
My Concerns: I agree with Dr. Lindsay; I'm worried about time, and I'm concerned about other unpredictable variables such as weather, and especially the opportunity of actually seeing some of the wildlife.
I also wish there was a way I could get closer for better recording opportunities. I would like to hear the hippos under the water and to learn more about "amphibious communication"; I read a paper on it and I think it would be a good think to look into if it were possible.
