You may picture hippos as large, lazy creatures, but this video captures one showing the very angry side of the giant animal.
Actually, the hippo is a very fast creature. According to the African Wildlife Foundation (AWF), they kill nearly 3,000 people every year.
This video was posted to YouTube on Sunday and has since gone viral. This certain animal is chasing a speedboat that was taking part in a photo safari in Kasane, Botswana. The boat must speed up to keep from being attacked.
It is important to note that the hippo is considered part of the vulnerable conservation status. The animal’s population has been pushed out of their habitats by civilization and hunting. Perhaps, this hippo is just protecting his home.
