Hippos make look clumsy and slow but they can run very fast, and according to the African Wildlife Foundation (AWF), they kill nearly 3,000 people every year.


Amazing footage from a whale watching group off the coast of Maui shows a huge humpback whale coming right up to the boat and actually bumping into it.


A group of vacationers went to observe the marine life in their natural habitat and one of them learned the hard way that it is sometimes better to observe from a distance.


While roaming the coast aboard a small boat, the group spotted a mother Humpback whale. A video filmed by one of them testifies of the inhospitable reception by the giant marine creature.


They tracked the humpback from a distance before it turned on them and proceeded to ram into their boat and toss the vessel 5 feet.


Simultaneously, a Humpback “tail-slapped” a woman who was sitting on a whale watching boat off the coast of Mexico. She was not badly hurt.
