Hippopotamus or hippos are normally enormous vertebrates found in sub-Saharan Africa. They are the fourth biggest vertebrates after the whale, elephant and the White rhinoceros. The word hippo comes from the old Greek signifying ‘waterway horse’. They have another sub species known as the Pygmy Hippopotamus. The creatures are for the most part semi-sea-going and they live in lakes, swamps and large waterways. During the day they cool their bodies by keeping afloat in the mud. At sunset they arise to munch on grass and other vegetation.
Hippopotamus are by and large singular creatures during brushing and they in some cases stray on rural grounds. They are known to annihilate crops around evening time and are so forceful, they even assault people. A regional bull can take up to 20 females. Generation and labor happen in the water. The normal load of a male hippo ranges between 1,500 to 1,800 kg. That of a female is between 1,300 to 1,500kg. Guys can even get bigger to 3,200kgs. The creatures measure between 3.3 to 5.2 meters long and have a stature of around 1.5 meters.
Hippopotamus have a running velocity changing from 30km/h to 50 km/h. They have a life expectancy of between 40 to 50 years. The most seasoned one that always lived was from Munich, Germany and kicked the bucket in 1995 at 61 years old. The creature has an entertaining look where the eyes and the nostrils are situated on the upper piece of the skull. This guarantees that they are in water while their bodies are lowered in mud to keep them from burn from the sun. Hippos can be seen in numerous pieces of the Eastern Africa like Kenya, Uganda and Tanzania.
