Hungry, hungry hippos: Boat gets too close to pack, hippo charges

Watch this amazing video of a hippo charging a tourist boat in Kenya.

Boat passengers say that one of the females likely felt threatened when the boat traveled too close. Even with the motor going full blast on the boat, it had trouble outrunning them. The hippos eventually gave up.
