Swahili Name: Kiboko Scientific Name: Hippopotamus amphibius Size: 13 feet long and 5 feet tall Weight: Up to 3 tons Lifespan: 50 years Habitat: Rivers, swamps and protected areas Diet: Herbivorous Gestation: About 240 days Predators: Humans, lions, crocodiles The hippopotamus, whose hide alone can weigh half a ton, is the third-largest living land mammal, after elephants and white rhinos. It was considered a female deity of pregnancy in ancient Egypt, but in modern times has been wiped out of that country because of the damage it inflicts on crops. The hippo continues to thrive in other parts of Africa.
The hippo's proportions reflect its sedentary, amphibious existence. Its plump and bulky body is set on short, stumpy legs, with each foot having four toes. Although webbed, the toes splay enough to distribute the weight evenly over each toe and therefore adequately support the hippo on land.

Return to Hippos in the Wild
Return to Hippo World - Table of Contents
A lmost every informational account of the hippopotamus makes some mention of the animal's violent temper. Various writers have described the hippo as "ill-tempered," "dangerous to man," and "wantonly malicious." But is this reputation deserved? There is no doubt that the hippopotamus is capable of serious damage and violence. Hippos will stand up to lions and have been known to bite full-grown crocodiles in half. Countless African natives have lost their lives when the boats they were traveling in were attacked by hippos. By some accounts, hippos cause more human deaths than any other wild creature in Africa, including lions and elephants. But the question remains: Is the hippo violent by nature or merely territorial? Dominant male hippos will defend their territories fiercely, and female hippos will attack any creature that threatens their young. In this regard, however, are they behaving any differently than numerous other wild species? Below is a list of quotes from various authors which address the issue of the hippo's innate temperament. I will allow you to draw your own conclusions.

From marching brooms to dancing hippos
Why 1940 was a great year for Walt Disney Walt Disney's first animated feature film, Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs (1937), was rapturously received. In the following years, Walt worked on several more animated projects simultaneously and moved to larger studios at Burbank, California, where the Disney company is still based. Now, on the occasion of Walt's centenary, we take a look at one amazing year in his life - Within nine months of 1940, two full-length Disney animation films were released in cinemas. Pinocchio , based on the story by Carlo Collodi, led the way. The designers based the film characters on clay and wooden models, and were also inspired by actors photographed in costumes. In the finished film, kindly old Geppetto is joined by Jiminy ('When You Wish Upon A Star') Cricket and Monstro the whale, as well as Pinocchio, the little puppet who dreams of being a real boy. Then came Fantasia , even more bold and original. This was first conceived as a short film - of which Walt had already produced many examples - with Mickey Mouse acting out

13. Hippos_enviorment
In the wild hippos live in open water such as lakes, rivers, streams, and swamps with banks drained daily as in the wild hippos often defecate frequently in the water
Habitat In the wild Hippos live in open water: such as lakes, rivers, streams, and swamps with banks. They must submerge underwater because their thin skin is vulnerable to overheating and dehydration. They tend to avoid rapids and perfer to live near good grazing ground. They will however walk 2 to 3 miles nightly to graze. The common hippos' habitats usualy exist south of the Sahara desert and other parts of Africa where there is adequate water and grazing (Skinner 234). In ancient times the hippo has been recorded as living as far north as the Nile Delta and appear quite often in Egyptian Art. Now most of the population lies in Southern Central and Eastern Africa.
Being so dependent on water, lack of rainfall is detrimental to the hippos well being. In October 2000 in Rawanda, nearly 2000 hippos were affected by a drought in that area and at least 10 hippopotami died. Water tankers were moved to the area to soften the mud allowing the hippos to move. ( Too much water isn't all that good for hippos either. Not being able to float the hippo thrives better in water deep enough to cover them, but not too much deeper. They also perfer a firm bottom to rest on and not get stuck in the mud.
Hippos create a large impact on the enviorment around them. The only animal with greater impact on the enviorment is the elephant. The hippo's grazing habits can often destroy much of the land around it. It eats about 88lbs of grass a night and with herds from 40 to 200 hippos this nightly eating can hurt the local enviorment. In fact in a place called Cameroon in Africa hippos have caused a food crisis for the people living there. 20 acres of food needed for the people was consumed by a herd of hippos, when grass became scarce near the local watering hole.

Facts about hippos
Facts about hippos: he's the behemoth of the wild - the mighty hippopotamus. Learn all about awesome hippo here.
3,500 years ago the Bible referred to him simply as Behemoth. What modern day creature fits such an imposing description? It is none other than that thick skinned herbivore the hippopotamus. The Bible gives us an interesting insight into the hippo. In Job Chapter 40 we learn that the hippo eats grass just as the bull, that its strong bones are like wrought iron rods, that it resides in swampy places and that it is not easily startled. All of these facts can be by studying the modern day hippo. What else do we know about this enormous creature? bodyOffer(16415) The hippo is, indeed an eater of vegetation. In a year, in fact, around 200 pounds of soft water plants, grass, reeds, and other greenery pass between its jaws every year. All of this food keeps the animal growing and a full grown hippo can reach up to 14 feet in length. They are also extremely heavy, reaching fully grown weights of about 3 or 4 thousand pounds. The heaviest recorded was 8,960 pounds. The weight of the hippo is supported on four rather stubby legs. These legs, however, contain extremely bones. They can also move quite rapidly, with the hippo easily being capable of outdistancing a human. The hippo has an extremely thick hide, allowing it to scrape alongside rocks and stones in the water without discomfort. The skin is equipped with special pores that secrete a thick, oily substance to keep the skin moist while out of the water. They spend the majority of their time in the water and can usually be spotted in herds of twenty or thirty. Spending their days submerged, allows the hippo to avoid the potentially damaging effects of the suns rays on its skin. At night, though, he comes onto dry land to graze for his food.
