Hippopotamus Saves the Day

In a set of unbelievable photos the often maligned Bad Boy of the jungle, the hippopotamus, is shown SAVING a wildebeest that was stuck in the mud of a raging river.

The annual wildebeest migration is underway in Africa and one of the poor fellows got terribly stuck in the mud.

A passing hippo took pity on it and literally bumped it and lifted it out by biting on its neck so it got unstuck.

You have to see it to believe it. And the hippo is MASSIVE. We also think it's a mom as the one picture shows two smaller hippos next to it.
