Watch: Hippo’s late night visit to a petrol station


It’s not every day you see a wild animal cruising the streets of any town or city in South Africa even though foreigners might think it’s a normal sight for South Africans.

Recently, footage of a hippo casually walking into a garage in the northern KwaZulu-Natal town of St Lucia went viral, and has thousands of views so far.

Thankfully despite being one of Africa’s most dangerous animals the semi-aquatic visitor left the petrol station without any issue. The video shows this seemingly gentle giant stroll past the pumps before making its way down the road.
