Curious about the speed at which hippos can run? 

As the third-largest land mammal globally, hippos are territorial creatures that charge at anything obstructing their access to water 

Surprisingly, hippos are responsible for more human fatalities in Africa than any other mammal. 

While the exact mortality rate from hippo attacks is uncertain, estimates range from 500 to 3000 annually. 

hippos can reach speeds of 30 km/h on land (19 mph), making them potentially faster than humans.
