- Weighing between 1 1⁄2 and 3 tons, Africa’s aggressive hippos are 3rd in weight behind African elephants and rhinos.
- Hippos spend most of the day underwater. They surface to breathe every 3 - 5 minutes, even while sound asleep.
- Despite its great weight, a hippo can swim 5 miles per hour and run at 30 miles per hour!
- Hippos are herbivores. They leave their watering holes at dusk to graze on grasses, eating over 100 lbs. of vegetation in one night.
