Interesting Animal # 113 - Hippo vs Lion

In Africa, humans are more likely to be killed by the vegetarian hippopotamus than the meat-eating lion.

(Hippos weigh up to 8000 pounds and can gallop at 18 m.p.h. A healthy adult lion weighs around 550 lbs, but they can run at 50 mph. A hippo's canines measure up to 20 inches long, a lion's 3.1 inches.)
