Summertime is fast approaching, and that means it's time for picnics and barbecues. Sandwiches of all kinds, grilled meats and, of course, delicious desserts will soon grace porches and picnic tables across the country. And what's a picnic without watermelon? However, prepping it can be a real chore.

Unless you're a hippopotamus.

As the video above shows, hippos enjoy watermelons in the summer, too. And they don't even worry about removing the rind. Pop a watermelon into a hippo's mouth and he'll crush the whole thing in one easy chomp. Sure, it makes a mess, but isn't that part of the fun?

Nothing says summer like eating an entire watermelon in one go.
