The makers of popular board game Hungry Hippo lied to us, man. They lied to me, they lied to you, they lied to everyone man. Hippos aren’t friendly. They don’t sit around with smiles on their face, and they don’t come in pink, orange, green, or yellow. No. Hippos are gnarly, dude; as gnarly as they come.
Did you know, for example, that hippos kill more humans than any other animal in Africa? It’s true. Look it up. And did you also also know that adult hippos can weigh anything up to 9,000 pounds, and that they have teeth as sharp as razor blades? Despite looking like overweight concrete cows, hippos, it’s safe to say, are more than capable of seriously fucking shit up.
Take this video here. It was shot by a man called Wikus Ceronie, as he made his way from Mozambique to South Africa, and it shows an adult hippo pounding the crap out of his car’s front end.
