This extraordinary wildlife footage showcases a cheeky baby elephant daring to confront a massive hippo.
We can’t help but fear for the baby elephant’s life as the hippo opens its mouth wide, but thankfully, the hippo decides to back off.
Despite their often docile appearance, hippos are considered one of the most dangerous animals in Africa.
Baby elephants are not just adorable; they are also highly intelligent. Elephants have an extremely high level of self-awareness, display empathy, and can even use tools.
That being said, this tiny baby elephant who takes on a hippo is still learning – its naive curiosity could’ve easily cost it its life.
