Photographer Vadim Onishchenko captured this incredibly rare moment while on a photo safari on the Mara River in Kenya. After a crocodile had caught a gnu (a type of antelope) crossing the river, a group of hippos observing the scene quickly made their way over, with one hippo in particular scaring off the crocodile. The situation became even more amazing after that same hippo escorted the gnu back to shore!
