Hippos are large animals, ranking as the third largest land mammal today, after elephants and white rhinos.
This is one of the most aggressive creatures in the world and is often seen as one of the most dangerous animals in Africa. Hippos are especially aggressive when trespassing their territory and touching their children.
The video was captured by a tourist while visiting the national park, when a hippo attacked a lion stuck on a rock in the river.
Specifically, the lion is resting for lunch on a rock in a river where hippos and crocodiles live. Hippos were bathing near the place where the lion was taking his lunch break.
Right after that, a giant hippopotamus attacked the lion. When attacked, the lion had no choice but to jump into the water to find a way to escape.
Although being chased by another hippo in the herd, the lion still escaped the bite and swam to shore safely.
Male lions usually guard a specific territory, but young males often roam until they have established their own.
Choosing a rather inconvenient place to stay put the lion against the hippo, one of the most ferocious animals in the world.
