Real Hippopotamus Tusk
The hippopotamus is found in the river systems throughout much of central Africa. Hippos spend much of the day socializing in the water but come ashore to feed at night. This sizable aquatic herbivore can be aggressive when protecting its territory. The hippopotamus contributes to more human deaths in Africa than lions, crocodiles, and venomous snakes combined.
