'Grumpy' Hippo's Wild Act After Being Provoked by Lions

A hippo sprayed excrement after being provoked by a group of lions in Kenya on March 29, according to a local wildlife-spotting group.

Maasai Sightings said their footage showed lions from the Rongai pride approaching and provoking the “grumpy” hippo, which then responded by marking its territory. The group of lions swiftly retreated in response.
