Wow, how hungry does a lioness have to be to try her luck against something THIS big?
Full points for courage, that’s for sure.
Maybe the lioness was hoping for an easy score, with the hippo napping in the sun.
But, napping or not… it’s still a freaking HIPPO.
Will this decision come to bite her in the ass? (Or anywhere else?)

It’s sharp teeth and claws versus size and a tough hide.
If you ever wondered why they say Nature is ‘red in tooth and claw’… this should put that question to rest.
But hippos are no pushover, either.
They’ve got a pretty dangerous reputation in their own right. They have been known to scare crocs away.
Really, it’s a battle between a couple of badass beasts.
Where do YOU think the smart money goes?
Will the lion get itself an enormous dinner? Will it lope away hungry? Or will the hippo’s dangerous jaws put the hurt on the Lion?
Place your bets!
And if you like all things ‘badass’…
you’ll probably enjoy this, too.
Does your grandpa go off on paltry politicians, whether they be Democrats or Republicans? Does he get misty eyed when he talks about God and Country and America’s future? And have you ever heard him scream, ‘Awww … Hell no!’ when Rosie O’Donnell starts yapping on television? If you answered yes to one, or all of the above, then your gramps will love Doug Giles’ latest book, My Grandpa Is A Patriotic Badass.
Don’t be fooled by the title — this ain’t just for Grandpa.
The Snowflake Generation — and the rest of America — needs a good ol’ dose of ‘Grandpa wisdom’.
Especially if that Grandpa is Doug Giles.
You’ll love My Grandpa Is A Patriotic Badass just as much as Grandpa will.
