Young Hippo Tries To Play With Crocodile

June 23, 2017 - Video captured a playful young hippo relentlessly pursuing a crocodile around a watering hole in Hwange National Park in Zimbabwe. The crocodile made several attempts at escape but the curious mammal continued to give chase. Crocodiles often prey on hippo calves but the reptile did not show any signs of predation nor did it fight back. The reluctant playmate eventually made its way to a herd of elephants that scared away the young hippo.
