Hippopotamidae

Hippos

The family Hippopotamidae contains the Hippopotamuses, or water horses, as it means in Greek. Hippopotamuses are enormous mostly aquatic mammals found throughout sub-Saharan Africa. They are mostly vegetarian but have large tusks used to defend their territory during breeding. Amazingly, more people are killed yearly in South Africa by hippos than by any other animal. All Hippopotamidae are members of the Artiodactyla.
