FUN FACTS FOR KIDS ABOUT HIPPOS: Where are hippos born? A hippo baby (called a "calf") is born on land or in water. It is protected by the mother, not only from crocodiles and lions but from hippo bulls that may try to attack them in the water. What do hippos love? Hippos love water and they spend most of the day in it to stay cool. The hippo can even breathe, see, and hear while its body is under water because its nose, ears, and eyes are on the top of its head. Do hippos swim better than people? Yes, they are excellent swimmers and can hold their breath for five minutes. Hippos can walk under water along the bottoms of rivers and lakes. Hungry hippos: Hippos are vegetarians. At night, they come out of the water and feed off the grass. Are hippos dangerous? Although hippos are vegetarians, they are still one of the most dangerous animals in the world. Once on land, hippos can run very fast, much faster than people normally can. When a hippo yawns it is not tired but shows its teeth to frighten other animals.
