    Ich schieße mit Kugeln aus Platin auf das Nilpferd, denn wenn ich die bleihaltige verwende, wird seine Haut sie mit Sicherheit platt machen.

    Disparo al hipopótamo con balas de platino, porque si uso la de plomo, su piel seguramente las aplastará.

    Je tire sur l'hippopotame avec des balles en platine, parce que si j'utilise celle en plomb, sa peau va sûrement les aplatir.

    私はプラチナ製の弾丸でカバを撃ちます。鉛の弾丸を使えば皮が確実に平らになってしまうからです。

    나는 백금으로 만든 총알로 하마를 쏜다. 납으로 만든 총알을 사용하면 하마의 가죽이 납작해지기 때문이다.

    eu atiro no hipopótamo com balas de platina, porque se eu usar a de chumbo o couro dele com certeza achatará.

    我用鉑金子彈射河馬,因為如果我用鉛彈,他的皮肯定會把河馬壓扁。
