While on a safari on the Mara River in Kenya, photographer Vadim Onishchenko caught this unusual moment on camera.
After a crocodile had captured an antelope crossing the river, a group of hippos quickly made their way over. One hippo, in particular became the ultimate hero by scaring the crocodile away from its prey.
The same hippo then escorted the antelope back to shore. What a cool moment to witness in real life!
