Hippos are mammals that mainly eat grass. It is one of the largest land mammals and the heaviest even-toed ungulate, although much smaller than the giraffe.

Hippo’s favorite habitat is half underwater, half on land. They usually inhabit the rivers, lakes and mangrove swamps of West Africa where males dominate a section of river and lead herds of 5 to 30 females and their young.


Despite their clumsy and slow appearance, hippos are exceptionally agile and dangerous. They are considered to be the most aggressive creatures in the world.

Even crocodiles, known as the “swamp king”, often have to avoid hand-to-hand encounters with hippos.

According to statistics, the jaws of hippos can crush one or two crocodiles about 3m long. Their ferocity is stronger than any large animal.

No wild animal in Africa kills more people than hippos. Every year, an average of 2900 people are killed by this animal.

Hippos are especially aggressive when it comes to trespassing their territory and touching their offspring. That is why it is very easy for the aborigines in Africa to lose their lives when they accidentally invade the territory of the hippo. They will chase, drag them into the lagoon, bite their boat.
