A heartbreaking scene happened in the Serengeti National Park in Kenya when a baby hippo mistook the injured wildebeest for its mother and both died on the riverbank.
After the river crossing, the wildebeest was seriously injured, so it was forced to lie down to die on the riverbank. Meanwhile, the baby hippo has lost its mother and is too young to distinguish which is its mother.
That’s why the baby hippo mistook the injured wildebeest for its mother. Even when being attacked repeatedly by the enemy, these few weeks-old hippos still refuse to leave.
Finally, when the wildebeest died from exhaustion, the baby hippopotamus remained by his side until he died from starvation.
