Zambia: Hippos Fighting on Zambezi & River Cruising

You don’t see this every day – two massive male hippos fighting! Bumping each other, growling with wide open mouths full of crooked teeth, and even leaping from the water like whales! Totally insane show! Make hippos are not territorial, so often most of the fights are between the dominant male and the rising bachelor for the females (just like humans). Hippos is also one of the most aggressive animals in the world and these fights can literally lead to injures or death (of a hippo or you – if you approach too close). Hippos are the main human killers in Africa when they attack canoes and bots and flip them, not for food but just fun.
