Dicken Muchena shared the horrific experience with Yahoo in an interview. “We knew the area was a harbor for hippos, and we wanted to go out and try to take some pictures of them. Knowing full well that they are killer animals, we gave them a wide path and avoided getting too close. There were at least six hippos in this area, and many more on various other parts of the lake, however, as we were leaving, a huge, restless hippo appeared out of nowhere and charged at us, apparently with wild patterns. “. He added that none of them had expected such a reaction as it is a “rare thing”. being loaded for at least four minutes, we could no longer see the animal tracks and rushed to safety ashore. It was a narrow escape,” Dicken added.
The hippopotamus is the third largest type of land mammal. They can weigh between 1,300 and 1,500 kg. It is considered the deadliest land mammal in the world.
