This angry hippo has had enough tourists for one day.
Hippos may look like fat, lazy animals, but this video shows first-hand just how fast and angry they are!
Yes, because rolling up the window will protect you if that huge animal had REALLY wanted to do you guys harm! The park notes in the video description the animal could have used its teeth to open the car like a tin can had it really wanted to.
Luckily for these tourists, the hippo decided to stop its attack at just a threatening display. In case you were wondering, the hippo had good reason to be cranky. Kruger National Park additionally posted in the video’s description that the animal was likely stressed because of a drought in the area.
It is not often the animals are seen out of the water. Did you see the big scars on this hippo’s back? Looks like he had recent scrapes with other hippos or maybe lions or other predators? No wonder he was so irritated.
It’s OK big guy. We’ve all had days like that. We totally understand!
