DRIVERS couldn’t believe their eyes and were forced to a double take on a rainy roundabout in Almeria in the south of Spain today.
Stood there, doing its best to hide behind a give-way sign while tucking into the lush grass on the roundabout, was a fully grown… hippopotamus!
After a quick green snack the hippo can be seen legging it across a busy road narrowly avoiding the traffic.
The huge animal was captured on video near the Centro Comercial de Roquetas and in less than an hour the clip has gone viral and received more than 14,000 views.
It is believed the beast escaped from a circus but where it was heading is currently unknown.
