The amazing video was captured in South Africa’s Kruger Park by retiree Merʋyn Van Wyk, 72, who was ʋvisiting the park with his wife Tokkie.
This is the moment when a pair of hippos prevent the crocodile from killing the wildebeest.
He said: “As we got closer to the dam, we noticed blue wildebeest, zebras and impalas grazing happily on the opposite side.
We noticed that an unfortunate wildebeest had been bitten by a crocodile on its right hind hoof.
At this time, the wildebeest used all its strength to drag the crocodile to the shore, as the crocodile on land could not bring out all its strength.
The two sides fought for up to 10 minutes, at this time we know that the wildebeest is also exhausted.
and was dragged back into the lake by the crocodile.
What we could not think of, at this moment, suddenly, two hippos appeared.
Hippo stared for a while, then made the decision to prevent the crocodile from attacking its prey.
This scene is very rare, not everyone can capture this happy moment.
Thanks to the help of the hippos, the wildebeest escaped death before the sharp teeth of the crocodile.
