When incomes to cold blooded scaly creatures there are some that we can abide by, alligators and crocodiles are somewhat common in this day and age, but the Yacare Caiman is entirely different type of beast (pardon the pun). These almost-dinosaurs can be found across South America, hiding in vegetation heavy bogs throughout Argentina, Brazil, and Paraguay.

They don't often eat their brothers and sisters, but in a pinch they'll feast on whatever's closest and no one is going to stop them, More often than not these creatures dine on fish, snakes, and snails found in the region, but with those teeth they can order anything they want off the menu.

In 2005, a South African man, Marius Els, adopted a baby hippo after rescuing it from a river. Six years later the hippo dragged him into the same river and ate him ☠️

In 2011, one of the more bizarre animal stories occurred when a South African farmer named Marius Els was mauled by his pet hippopotamus, Humphrey. Els adopted Humphrey five years earlier after rescuing him from a quickly rising river near his home. The two became swift friends, and Els even described the animal as being "like a son."

Things took a dark turn five years after the rescue when Humphrey began acting out and attacking people on the Els farm. It's not clear what began the altercation, but the gored body of Els was discovered submerged in the same river in which he saved Humphrey.
