Hippos (Hippopotamus Amphibius) in the water, Zambia

Hippo's spend long hours of the day in the water, which helps them to keep their body temperature down and their skin from drying out. Hippo's are vegetarian and feed on around 60kg of grass per night. They are highly territorial animals, marking their territory by spinning their tails while defacating.
