Africa can be a very dangerous place, but the surfing heron in this video figured out a pretty safe way to get around.
Can you guess what the heron is standing on to stay afloat? Check out the video below.
Well, how did you do? Did you guess hippo?
This was some pretty inventive thinking for a heron to come up with. I just hope the hippo doesn’t get fed up with being used as a surfboard. It might not end well for the surfing heron if that happened.
The last animal you want to get close to in Africa is the hippo. Every year they kill a lot of people and injure many others. Simply put, they just should not be messed with. However, this heron seems pretty content cruising around onboard the hippo’s back.
Nature never ceases to amaze.
