Visitors to the Kenyan Masai Mara filmed a startling fight with a hungry lioness of a hippopotamus. The predator crept up to the sleeping hippopotamus and tried to bite him. However, the huge beast quickly realized what was what and almost bitten off the attacker’s head, reports UPI.
In the frames below, the battle of the hippopotamus and the lioness is recorded, to which the predator clearly was not ready.
The attacker managed to escape from the powerful jaws of the hippopotamus and leave the battlefield without visible damage. The authors of the video noted that it is unlikely that the lioness will soon decide to attack the hippopotamus again.
