Big match up between african heavy weights! This fight has been requested hundreds of times since the dawn of this website. This fight could happen in the wild as their habitats do overlap.
The hippo is a massive and ferocious animal. It spends about 75% of its time submerged in water, but despite this fact, hippos are surprisingly graceful on land and have been clocked at 19 mph over short distances.
Hippos are naturally aggressive and routinely attack other animals, such as crocodiles, in its habitat. A hippo's mouth can open to 4 feet and wields tusks that are nearly 3 ft long!
The White Rhino is equally as massive and aggressive as the hippo and possesses a towering horn that can grow up to 5 ft! Rhinos have a tough, thick hide that helps prevent injuries. Amazingly at this size, rhinos can charge at bursts of up to 40/mph.
Obviously in the water the rhino has no chance but since there is no reason that the rhino would be in the water this fight takes place on land. I know there are many hippo supporters out there but I just dont see any circumstances where the hippo would be able to get around the Rhino's defenses. The two beasts would size each other up for a while before the rhino would gore the hippo from under its mouth and straight through its head.
