Hippopotamus 2018

Quantity: Only 4 left in stock.




Although hippopotamuses cannot swim particularly well, they spend nearly all day in the water. 

They cannot simply drift along, because theyre just too heavy.

If they wish to cross a river, they allow themselves to sink to the bottom and walk along the river bed to the other shore.

Fun fact

Hippopotamuses can hold their breath underwater for up to 30 minutes.
