I'm disappointed in Fark to say the least. Here you go.

Hippos ain't no joke. The meanest mammal who lives in the waters of rivers of Africa is not to be screwed with - they kill waaaay more people every year than crocodiles do.

A friend who used to live in Tanzania told me that by far the most dangerous wild animals are hippos.  They're super territorial, and they get really nervous when they're out of the water.  So never get between one of them and the river, because they panic and head for the water and they don't even notice that they've crushed you to death.

Seriously, imagine a Tea Partier in their hoveround and you're in between them and the Doritos aisle at Walmart.

I'm skeptical about this story and I'll leave it to someone else to post the skeptical hippo pic.

If I'm in the backwoods of Africa, I'd much rather run across a lion than a hippo.  A lion will probably run away from you.  A hippo, on the other hand, is a mean, aggressive bastard who's very likely to attack.

I guess is wasn't so bad, considering he's still leading expeditions down the Zambezi River.
