Lioness Tries To Hunt Hippo, Immediately Gets Slammed Into The Ground

Lions are pretty much known to be the “king of the jungle,” and hey, I know this because I’ve seen The Lion King over 500 times. But let’s not forget that there are other animals out there that can go toe-to-toe with lions and one of those animals is the hippo. And this video proves just that.

The video below, shared by Maasai mara Sightings, has gone viral since it was first posted as it is currently at over two million views. But why has it blown up? Well it shows the moment a lioness attempts to sneak up on a hippo she either believes is dead, injured or sleeping. And it’s none of those things because the hippo quickly gets up to kick some lion ass.

Take a look at the video below of the fight that went down in Kenya.

Well damn, that hippo was not about to become a meal. And for some reason I hear this line when watching that hippo take care of business:


But it looks like both the hippo and the lioness both moved on to live another day, although something tells me that lioness won’t be messing with that hippo again.
