I was under the assumption that Hippos were herbivores (only eating plants) but this video shows they have no problem getting their meat on. A huge crocodile killed a zebra during a crossing of the Mara River during the Great Migration, and promptly had it stolen by the 2 young hippos. Apparently hippos have been known to eat small amounts of meat from time to time. These big boys kept the crocodile at bay for a good 45 minutes. Trust us you don’t want to interfere with a hungry hippo.
