This Is What Happened When A Raging Hippo Smashes Into Truck



Hippopotamus or hippo is a large animal. The average size of adults goes to 1,500 kg (3,300 lb) and 1,300 kg (2,900 lb) for males.

Well here is a video showing the same. The video was captured by Wikus Ceronie, a motorist travelling through the Kruger National Park en-route to South Africa from working in Mozambique on Friday.

There were people walking around in the nearby vicinity so I automatically assumed this hippo was used to humans.”


“I was quite fascinated by this so I took out my phone to start filming. Suddenly the hippo turned and just started charging. I braced myself as I realized he wasn’t going to stop. He hit the bakkie head on and then tried biting it. I guess after that he decided he had won because he just turned around and left.”

“This was terrifying for me because I realized I had nowhere to go and no time to do it in. Beside me was a 50m drop so had he hit me on the side I have no doubt the car would have rolled down the embankment. Even though there was damage done to the bonnet of my vehicle and the door couldn’t open, I’m grateful there were no serious injuries at the end of day.” he told
