Happy  Saturday, Internet. Let's celebrate by watching a baby hippo chase some birds: https://screen.yahoo.com/awesome-animals/baby-hippo-entertains-itself-chasing-084655538.html #hipposaregreat
Rhys Scott-Dawkins of endlesssummertours.co.za was visiting the Kruger National Park when he encountered a young hippo with a rather playful streak. The hippo kept himself busy chasing water fowl until his mother came out of the water to see what all the commotion was about! Credit: YouTube/endlesssummertours.co.za
