Two Fierce Hippos Battle for the Title of Pack Leader [VIDEO]

Watch these two hippos battle it out to be the leader of the pack. 

Known to be very territorial, hippos battle only if there’s something big at stake.

Watch as these massive and violent hippos battle to establish dominance in the pack.

These animals can weigh up to 4,000 pounds and travel 30 miles per hour. So if you see hippos battle, just let them have their way.

Their razor-sharp, tusk-like canines can grow up to a foot long and they can open their mouths four feet wide and snap shut with the force of one ton.

As you saw in this video, the young male won, but that’s just the way it goes sometimes — out with the old and in with the new.
