Hippos feed mostly on grass, although there have been a few rare reports of them eating carrion. Herbivore or not, they’re highly aggressive.
The dogs keep their distance but they’re definitely not letting the impala out of their sights.
These spotted hounds are great at what’s called persistence hunting. Hunting in packs of up to 20 animals, they usually isolate and corner their prey. They’re extremely patient and will wait until the animal becomes exhausted before pouncing.
