This video is going viral, and it comes to us from an African watering hole, where a crocodile grabs an endangered wildebeest by the leg and looks to have an easy meal. That’s when a hippo crashes the scene, charges the crocodile, and forces the predator to release is death grip on the wildebeest’s leg. The hippo intimidating the crocodile gave the wildebeest freedom, and a new lease on life, as some viewers think this video is evidence of a herbivore saving another herbivore from a deadly predator. In reality, hippos are fiercely territorial, it’s what makes them the deadliest animal in Africa. This hippo is flanked by a young hippo, it did not like this commotion happening in what it feels is its home stretch of the river, and it probably did not want the blood and wildebeest guts to attract other predators to the area or turn its home into a crocodile feeding frenzy which could potentially put its young hippo in jeopardy.
