Set of scaled elevation drawings of the Hippopotamus viewed from the front and side

Always in a bad mood, and loving water, the Hippo or Hippopotamus amphibius, is among the most dangerous land animals local to sub-Saharan Africa. It is also called the common hippopotamus or river hippopotamus. It is large with a pig-like profile, loves to show its large canine task, and opens the mouth extra-wide. Besides, it has pillar-like legs and a hairless body. The hippo is an herbivore, grassing at night and remaining submerged in water during the day. Females give birth to one calve every two years. Males are larger than females and very territorial and prefer to be in groups when basking but solitary when grazing.
