Live: Crocodiles vs. hippos? Who is the king in the river?
Although crocodiles and hippos are always living in the same river, the former would never easily attach the latter. With the large mouth and strongest canine teeth, the hippos could easily bite through a crocodiles' armor. In addition, crocodiles attack zebras, wildebeests or antelopes crossing the river, only to be overrun by hippos when a full meal seems in sight, only making the prey escape. What's more, due to the strong consciousness of territory, the hippos always guard the remains of dead companions from crocodiles.
