This might surprise a lot of people, but my # 5 favorite wild animal is the Hippopotamus. I know they certainly aren't as beautiful as the Wolf or the Tiger, but there is something awesome about these giants of the wild. I have just always found them fascinating, they are the 3rd largest animal on land, after the Elephant and, the Rhino. Hippo's are fearless and, brave animals. I have witnessed them on animal planet chasing off Lions on many occasions and, even helping a smaller Elephant, who was under attack, they look slow and, docile, but they are actually the opposite a Hippo can move very fast and, they are probably the most aggressive of all animals, when threatened.

@TRBRocks420 I wouldn't mess with them. They are more fearless than lions my dad said that. He's been on A LOT of safaris and he said lions are somewhat scaredy cats if not used to humans but hippos are way more dangerous and the stats seem to back him up on that.
