The word Hippopotamus comes from the Greek “water-horse” due to the hippo’s fondness for water.. This is one big powerful herbivore. The hippo is one of the most feared animals in Africa.

Being highly territorial and aggressive, it has been known to knock over small boats and attack the crew. It is the other thing that they seem too slow..

Only the female hippos bite force has been measured since the male was much too aggressive to test, but it measured at a whopping 1821 pounds per square inch. .

The hippo’s closest cousins are whales and cows. They belong to the order Artiodactyla which includes most hoofed animals, so camels, horses and goats are also related to hippos.
