#AtoZChallenge – Hippopotamus

The hippotamus is a large mammal native to Africa. These herbivores spend their days in water or mud (even reproduction and childbirth occur here) and come out at dusk to graze. Although they luxuriate in the “bath” – water or mud – in groups, on land they are solitary creatures.
