When we think of Hippos we always remember the board game ‘Hungry, Hungry Hippo’

We never realized they were hungry for people and not just plastic balls!

Turns out the Hippo is one of Africa’s biggest threats to humans, and if this video is anything to go by, being in a speedboat may not get you out of trouble when these big guy’s fire up!

Fun Fact: Apparently the Hippo’s closest living relative is the whale, which may explain why they are so quick in the water.
