Bonus Video: How Fast Can a Hippo Run?

You’d think a hippo would be way too fat to generate any speed. Boy, would you be wrong.

The hippo in this video hasn’t yet opened his throttle all the way, but he’s already much faster than you will ever run. Hippos also tend to be irritable if they think you’re encroaching on their territory. Believe it or not, statistically hippos are the most dangerous animals in Africa.
