What is YOur Favorite Endangered Animal on EcoBuddies

How much do you care about the environment

Wednesday, June 17, 2009


There are SO many cool things about Hippos. I love them because they live in and out of the water and because they are related to WHALES! You heard me! Whales and porpoises are Hippopotamus' closest living relatives. Cool, hey?

Hippos are also the third largest land mammal in the world. Despite their size though they can easily outrun humans. I wonder if they can outrun cheetahs though. What do you think?

Hippos live in herds with 5 to 30 other Hippos. One of the names for these herds is a 'bloat'. Funny, hey?

Hippos are endangered as they are threatened by poachers and because of changes in their environment. This is why it is important for all of us Buddies to talk about why we should take care of Hippos.

Anyhow, I am going to make a HIPPO puzzle for you to play, so catch you later! Oh, and thanks to for the picture of this amazing Hippo!

Stay Green!
