Hippos are recognisable by their barrel-shaped torsos, enormous mouths and teeth, nearly hairless bodies, stubby legs and tremendous size.

They are the third-largest type of land mammal by weight (between 1½ and 3 tonnes): the only heavier species on average are the white and Indian rhinos, typically 1½ to 3½ tonnes, and the elephants, typically weighing 3 to 9 tonnes.

The hippopotamus is one of the largest quadrupeds and, despite its stocky shape and short legs, it can easily outrun a human. Hippos have been clocked at 30 km/h (19 mph) over short distances.

The hippopotamus is one of the most aggressive creatures in the world and, as such, ranks among the most dangerous animals in Africa.
