The pictures are decent, less pixilated than other versions of this series, but still they are small. But over all, full of facts, and longer than some of the other volumes. I don’t know much about Hippos so I found this volume particularly interesting. Also, Baby Hippos, UNBELIEVABLY adorable!! This version is worth getting despite them talking a little bit about hippos being hunted for their ivory teeth.
Hippos live 35-50 years- that’s kinda a wide range isn’t it??
Did you know?
The closest relatives of the Hippo are whales and dolphins
There are only two species of hippos left in the world(!!! :-(
The hide of a hippo is six inches thick
Hippos are not very susceptible to disease
Nearly all hippos are born underwater.
Hippos live in herds with 30-40 others.
The only land animals larger than hippos are elephants and rhinos.
