To protect her young hippo from the lion’s attack, the mother hippo rushes in (Video)

Hippos are one of the most dangerous animals in Africa. They are known to be incredibly aggressive, especially when it comes to protecting their territory and offspring. In a recent viral video, a baby hippo was seen defending its mother from a bloodthirsty male lion.

The video starts with a hungry lion discovering a mother hippo lying on the side of the road, exhausted from dehydration. The baby hippo stands in front of its mother, trying to prevent the lion from reaching her.

Despite the significant size difference between the baby hippo and the lion, the hippo charges at the predator to scare it away and protect its mother. The lion tries to pounce on the baby hippo, but it manages to escape and then returns to attack the lion again. Eventually, the lion gives up and retreats.

However, the mother hippo died shortly after the video was recorded due to dehydration. The baby hippo, not yet old enough to feed itself, also died of dehydration two days later. This heartbreaking scene demonstrates just how dangerous the African wilderness can be, even for the strongest and most formidable creatures.

Hippos are often seen as docile animals, but they are actually incredibly aggressive and territorial. They have been known to attack boats and humans that venture too close to their habitat. In fact, hippos are responsible for more human deaths in Africa than any other large animal.

In the wild, hippos are primarily herbivores, feeding on grass and other vegetation. They spend most of their days in the water to regulate their body temperature and avoid predators. Despite their large size and awkward appearance, hippos are incredibly agile and can run up to 30 miles per hour on land.

Hippos also have impressive teeth, which can grow up to 20 inches long. These teeth are used for fighting off predators and other hippos during territorial disputes. In fact, hippos are known to have some of the strongest bites in the animal kingdom.


In conclusion, hippos are one of the most aggressive animals in the world and should not be underestimated. The viral video of the baby hippo defending its mother from a lion is a stark reminder of just how dangerous the African wilderness can be. However, despite their aggression, hippos are also fascinating creatures that play an important role in the ecosystem. It is important to respect these animals and give them the space they need to thrive in their natural habitat.
