Hippos in Russia – level 1
Hippos are aggressive, easily scared, and very dangerous animals. People can use them for fighting. In Russia, however, they do tricks at a circus show.
One circus has three hippos. They roll over, jump, and even play a real-life version of Hungry Hippos. Sometimes, they get close to people, but they are not afraid.
The hippos are fully trained. No physical force is used on them.
You can watch the original video in the Level 3 section.
