This is the moment a herd of elephants huddled together for safety and hid beneath the water of an African river – until they were spotted by cheeky hippos who pushed them out.
The elephants started their crossing of the wide Zambezi River, Zimbabwe, to reach a banana plantation.
They get deeper into the water, in a bid to reach the other side unnoticed.
But the elephants were caught out when a pod of angry hippos spotted their trunk sticking up from the water.
It turns out the elephants were not really good at hiding themselves, likely due to their size.
The hippos get close to the elephants, attacking them and pushing them out of the water.
The herd hurries to the other side, finally reaching the banana plantation after the dangerous adventure.
