They Were Enjoying Their Boat Tour…Until They Saw A TERRIFYING Sight In The Water.

Last week, musician Craig Clive Jackson and his family were on a safari tour with Pangolin Photo Safari in Kasana, Botswana. He captured something extraordinary using his iPhone 6.

Most of the time, hippos ignore the tourists photographing them from a distance with the long lenses of their cameras. During breeding season, the bulls become more aggressive and territorial and will open their jaws as a warning to others that they are too close. They can't actually swim, but can move fast by pushing off the river floor with their slightly webbed feet. Thanks to the skilled boat captain, these people were able to get out of the way quickly.
