Hippopotamus

Hippopotamus

Hippos will only eat about 1 percent of their body weight in a single evening, which is a very low percentage for such a large animal.

Hippopotamus

The hippo does not sweat, but is secreting a reddish substance that protects its skin from sunburn and keeps it moist.

Hippopotamus

The name hippopotamus comes from the Greek words ’hippos,’ meaning horse, and ’potamus,’ meaning river. But hippos are not related to horses at all – they are more closely related to pigs.
