Hippopotamus

Hippopotamuses, or hippos for short, are large semiaquatic mammals found in sub-Saharan Africa. Commonly sighted in rivers, swamps and lakes, the hippopotamus is an herbivore that lives mostly in the water when not feeding on nearby grasses. The hippo is the third-largest land mammal on the planet.

The typical Hippopotamus has an overall height of 54.0"-78.0" (1.4-2 m) and body length of 114.0"-168.0" (9’6"-14’) (2.9-4.3 m). An average Hippopotamus weighs between 3,100-8,800 lb (1,500-4,000 kg) and has a typical lifespan of 40-50 years.
