Does a hippo stand a chance against an elephant in a fight?

Combat between two of the strongest and most fearsome animals in nature… In the hypothetical case that this combat occurs, we will look at the characteristics of both contenders…

The hippopotamus is capable of killing lions, destroying the shells of crocodiles, a whole killing machine.

An adult male can weigh two tons…

The elephant, no self-respecting living being, would stand in front of this tank, he alone could sweep away a herd of lionesses. They can reach a height of 4 meters and weigh 6 to 7 tons of muscles….

The confrontation between the two pujiles, although totally unlikely, since they are not competitors, could be produced by defending their offspring…

The battlefield is prepared, the fighters are ready and the combat begins between these two tanks, reinforced by nature…

What will happen?, Well, you will see it in the following image.

The elephant, all he had to do was run over him, with a difference of 5 tons in weight, he went over him like a steamroller… And it was over, winner in the first round, with some bruises and everyone calm, the hippopotamus returns to the water with his friends and I’m sure he’ll tell them not to mess with the big guy, if they don’t want a romp.

The superiority was evident.

Let’s match something to the opponent of the elephant.

If there were an elephant confrontation against a 3000 kg rhinoceros, 2 meters tall at the shoulders, with a horn as an attack and a reinforced structure like an armored car, who would win?

But I will leave this assumption for another article…
