They Noticed Something Following Their Boat, But They Never Expected This To Happen…

The iconic line from the movie, Jaws, has never felt more applicable: “You’re gonna need a bigger boat.” Watch as a boat cruise down the Chobe River in Zambia turns into a fast getaway from a very frightening hippopotamus. Perhaps more terrifying than the massive animal itself is how quickly it moves through the water!

According to National Geographic, the hippo is actually considered the most dangerous animal in Africa. In fact, “their teeth are so huge that they need large cavities in their heads to accommodate them!” Animal Danger adds that they are “easily frightened and extremely aggressive [and] will not hesitate to attack a human, especially if one of [their] young babies are near.” While they may look kind of cute, we’re perfectly content viewing this hippo from the safety of our homes!
