This actually made me want to look it up and see if it's true, and IT IS. Hippos actually kill more people annually than sharks! They kill roughly 2,900 people a year. Apparently, male hippos are extremely territorial of their stomping ground, and female hippos will attack anyone who proves to be a threat to their babies. Plus they can run 20 mph, which is weird because I always imagined them to be really slow.
As for sharks? Six people at most. (Kind of makes you wonder what the movie 'Jaws' would've been like if it were a hippo attacking that boat.)

sharks aren't evil just really stupid and before even knowing what they're biting into, they will bite something to figure out of it's food and if it's not they will spit it out. They're actually really awesome <3
I think vending machines kill more people than sharks tbh
Hungry hungry hippos
@danidee We don't want to be wasteful
Fast food kills more .... I think
