An African safari boat ride was rudely interrupted by an enormous and angry hippopotamus. 

As the speedboat travels on Lake Kariba in Zambia, you can see a figure moving swiftly under the water. 

As the boat picks up speed, the hippo lunges out of the water - like a scene out of "Jaws" - and just misses crashing down on the boat.

The video was taken by Craig Jackson of Pangolin Photo Safaris, which uploaded it to their Facebook page.

The company points out that there's a misconception about hippos being docile, lethargic herbivores. They're actually "very dangerous" creatures and "deadly fast" moving through the water.
