NATURE | Hippo Beach | Beach Master | PBS

Duration: 02:47

Two hippos square up in a ritual confrontation. From NATURE's Hippo Beach, airing on Sunday, September 16th at 8 p.m. (ET) on PBS (check local listings.)

This definitive look at hippos in the wild captures a year in the dangerous life of a hippo family living along the banks of the Luangwa River in Zambia. The film follows the fortunes of a "pod" of hippos, featuring a baby hippo, his mother, and his father -- the dominant bull and master of "Hippo Beach."
