Dangerous Hippopotamus

The Dangerous Hippopotamus Africa's sea horse
Hippopotamuses or the "river horse” are the third-largest living land animals after the African elephants and the white rhinos. Being herbivore mammals and with an average life span in the wild of up to 40 years and weighing about 4000kgs, the dangerous Hippopotamus population is decreasing as the number of hippopotamus attacks also keep on decreasing as many of the hippopotamus in Africa are located in the farming regions and many of the African lakes and rivers where the local people come to some of the lakes and rivers to collect water, irrigate their land and also become victim of circumstances while traveling in these treacherous infested hippopotamus and crocodile waters

The Hippopotamus natural habitat
Most of the  hippopotamus (Hippopotamus amphibius), or hippo, from the ancient Greek for "river horse" are mostly found in sub-Saharan Africa in courtiers such as, Tanzania, Uganda, Malawi, South Africa, Gabon, , Kenya, Lesotho, Namibia, , Rwanda while the Pygmy Hippopotamus is mostly found in the west coast of Africa mostly Côte d'Ivoire, Equatorial Guinea, The Gambia, Ghana, Guinea, Guinea-Bissau. Liberia, Nigeria, Niger, Réunion, where most of the animal or hippo attacks take place. The amazing this is that all hippopotamus will graze in the same are and look for food miles away and way back to their resting ground.

The natural vegetation found in water and on river beds in Africa where these dangerous water and land animal are found are bred can be a killing ground as these giant hippos with their aggressiveness can come out when people or other dangerous animals encroach into their territory or when they find themselves victims in places where the Hippos are foraging during their nocturnal rounds in any given locality.

The dangerous Hippopotamus are good swimmers 
These four webbed toes dangerous sea horses spend up to 16 hours a day submerged in rivers and lakes under the company of other dangerous animals such as the African Nile crocodiles, the African elephant when it comes to take a swim to keep their massive bodies cool after grazing in the beautiful African savannah grassland on a hot day. 

Many of the hippopotamus dangerous attacks take place in the rivers and lakes of Africa because hippopotamus are very good swimmers. The Hippos can hold their breath underwater for about 5 minutes. These giant hippopotamus  attack or capsize many boats and canoes when the stand or walk on the floor of many lakes or rivers.

With death role of around 200, they have been known to kill other animals and many people mostly farmers and nomads on dry land who move from one place to another in search of greener pastures and water thereby falling pray to this huge dangerous wild animal which is one of the biggest land animals.

Hippos the great animal attack runners
While foraging for food at night these dangerous hippopotamus  travel 6 miles (10 kilometers) in a night, along single-file pathways, to consume some 80 pounds (35 kilograms) of grass. And if you are lucky enough to meet them on their habitat, running for your life is the only option otherwise you will end up being attacked by the hippopotamus despite the fact that hippos can match a human's speed for short distances
And when they are threatened on land these massive dangerous hippos may run for the water and take cover. These natural born killer animals though they are herbivorous, attacking a human being for them is just like another intruder in their natural habitat

For the continuation of the African hippopotamus species, the male hippopotamus always pose a threat to young or new born baby hippopotamus. The female hippopotamus with its giant size mouth and teeth will always attack the male hippos that wander or swim too close to the baby hippo. The clash of the hippos will only end if the male hippo lies down and acts submissively to show that he means no harm to the hippo family.

Are the hippopotamus going to be extinct, well these beautiful hippopotamus once thrived   and were greatly feared when they roamed the whole of sub-Saharan Africa. With the decline of enough and fresh water for the African hippopotamus for wallowing, cooling off and plenty of lash grass for grazing not many hippopotamus are remaining in the world. With little data or hippopotamus information in many countries where they are found, many of the hippopotamus attacks are also not recorded. Unless the endless hunting of these African hippopotamus end just because they have crosses the farmers line of income for his subsistence crops and for the hippos  meat and teeth  their habitat has dwindled only to remain in protected areas.

By proper animal communication information and education, many animal and dangerous hippo attacks can be reduces and as a spill over effect while  saving Nile hippopotamus habitat, we protect these dangerous hippopotamus and many other animals of Africa as well.
