Going to the zoo is a fun family activity, as children love to see and learn about the different animals. Some animal cages have signs warning you to keep away from the fences, since you might find the animals on their bad side, and they could be aggressive. However, in the case of the hippos, you should keep away for a whole other reason.
You should keep away from the hippos’ area unless you want to be in the splatter zone. Whether the hippos do it as a means of scaring people away, or whether they just can’t help themselves – we wouldn’t want to be caught in the splatter zone. Once again, this illustration tells us everything we need to know about the dangers here!
