Hippos are most active at night and are herbivores, and this means they feed mostly on plants, they are also semi-aquatic mammals and this means they live in both land and water.
Hippos can be found mostly in sub-Saharan Africa and these places include South Africa, Ethiopia, Kenya, etc.
In marshes and lakes, they frequently engage in combat with crocodiles. Hippos can be seen in big herds in Tanzania and Zambia but they are becoming scarce in the Republic of Congo and the Virunga National Park.
