Hippos spend most of their time under water. They are very dangerous if encountered in the wild. They are herbivores. So that means they eat plants. They live in Africa. They live near Rivers and swamps. They are the third biggest land animal. The only animals bigger are elephants and white rhinos. Their predators are Poachers, Lions, and crocodiles. They weigh 3 and a half tons. Their hide alone can weigh 1 and a half tons. There are two types of hippos in Africa the Pigmy and regular hippo. They are very aggressive animals.
