This video is gojng viral, and it comes to us from the Maasai Mara wildlife reserve in Kenya, it shows a lion investigate a hippo as a potential meal with devastating results. The lion sees a large meat mass laying in the tall grass, and when it approaches, that mass of flesh turns out to be a hippo. The hippo charges the curious lion, first bumping the lion with a headbutt, and then clamping down its powerful jaws on the lion’s head. At the end of the video the lion seems to escape the encounter unscathed, but according to reports, the lion was found later bleeding from its mouth and eventually died from its injuries. This is our second blog this week that featured a hippo taking a life, an American tourist visiting Africa on safari was recently killed by a hippo, and the moniker of “The World’s Most Dangerous Animal” for the hippopotamus is justified.
