    Are hippos afraid of sharks?

    Yes.

    Otherwise they would not try to kill them.

    Are sharks afraid of hippos?

    I don't think so. They have no regard for what they encounter. They just want to eat it.

    Hippos have brains.

    Sharks,?

    Not so much.

    If you have ever swimmed with sharks, or been in the presents of any major carnivore in it's natural environment, you would realize they have no animosity towards you. They look at you as you look at a steak at the grocery store. They don't hate you. They don't fear you.

    You fear it.

    It just wants to eat you.

    It's hungry.

    I think that's what makes hippos so dangerous. Hippos do hate you. Hippos hate the idea of anyone or anything coming into what they have decided is their territory, and they have the chops to back it up. Hippos hate you, and they will kill you.

    The Bull Shark is hungry and hunting for food that is the reason it is in fresh water, the visibility is zero in dirty water that is what you see playing out.

    I have to disagree. I think mosquitos cause more human deaths than hippos. They're just not as dramatic about it.
