This is the devastating moment a baby hippo is attacked and drowned by an adult male.

In a shocking attack, the four-thousand-pound bull sinks his teeth into the infant before holding it down beneath the water’s surface.

 

A video shows the male hippo swinging the baby around violently as the bloodied calf thrashes between its teeth.

Other hippos stand nearby as the child takes its final breath before sinking beneath the water.

It took the 14-foot-long bull, which was at least six years old, just two minutes to kill the tiny baby.

With the absent child no longer suckling, the mother will once again be ready to mate.

The assault was captured by safari guide and camp manager Peter Geraerdts at the South Luangwa National Park, Zambia, in 2018.

The Dutch-born 51-year-old lives in Mfuwe, Zambia.

The young hippopotamus was one week old and weighed a mere 100 pounds
