This is why you probably don’t want a hippopotamus for Christmas.
Don’t let the catchy Christmas jingle fool you, hippos are not good presents. Just ask this guy who encountered a real life hungry hippo and lost . . . big time.
You thought deer running out in front of your car was bad? Just be thankful you don’t have hippos that chomp down on your car as you drive by. As you can see, this Ford was no match against a charging hippo. It smashes into the vehicle head on and then sinks its huge teeth into the front bumper. The car is basically just a chew toy for this huge beast!
If you have someone in your home asking for a hippopotamus this Christmas, take it from us, don’t do it.
