The hippopotamus one of Africa’s best-known animals. This huge mammal lives a semiaquatic existence, spending most of the day in rivers, lakes and swamps, and only emerging at dusk.
Despite being herbivorous, it is no gentle giant: hippos are notoriously dangerous in the wild.
Sadly, like many of Africa’s large animals, the hippo is threatened by both habitat loss and hunting. Its conservation status is now ‘vulnerable’.
