Stranded Lion Attacked By Hippos In ‘Rarest’ Sight

A lion stranded on a rock in a South African river was attacked by a large hippo, prompting the massive cat to frantically attempt to swim to security. (Watch the video beneath.)

Veteran information Steyn Jacobsohn’s video of the encounter in Kruger National Park rapidly went viral when it was posted this week on YouTube.

The clip begins with the lion sprawled on a small rock as many hippos method. A very giant one emerged from the depths and repeatedly snapped on the lion’s head.

The lion jumped from the rock and made a swim for it. But not with out drama.

As he neared the shore, a hippo burst via the floor simply behind him in a attainable failed assault, however the lion stored churning towards land.

A lone lion towards even one grown hippo is a nasty wager, particularly within the water. This beleaguered huge cat ― doubtless a younger nomad but to determine his personal territory, Jacobsohn mentioned ― realized the exhausting approach that you simply take your probabilities wandering right into a river of hippos.
