Ever seen a hippopotamus getting its teeth brushed by a human? No, we are not making that up. A video of the same has been going viral on the internet.
The clip that we are talking about was shared by the Twitter account Nature is Lit with the caption, “Casually brushing the teeth of one of the most dangerous animals on the planet (sic),” and it perfectly describes the clip.

The 1-minute-video is likely from a zoo. It shows a hippo taking its face out of the water as soon as it sees a man approaching. The man, who has a large brush in his hands, sits at the edge of the water body and that is when the hippo opens its mouth letting the man brush its teeth.
Everything happens so smoothly which makes us feels that it is a ritual and the hippo gets its teeth brushed regularly.
The man first rubs the hippo’s gums with his hands and then starts brushing its teeth. All this while, the hippo calmly lies there with its mouth open. We are in awe of this video and so is Twitter. Have a look at some of the comments.
Even hippos need to fight gingivitis

Maybe they did it since it was a baby and it likes how it feels now?

That’s amazing. It’s hard to find a human with that kind of discipline when the doctor says “Say Ahhh!”
Didn’t close it’s mouth ONCE. Incredible.
