Information Report – Hippopotamus

This is FIOP. Our writing task is another information report which is based on Hippos. I wrote about their habitat/diet, family/life, and conservation. I read a few articles about this and found some cool and interesting facts. I hope you have enjoyed this post. Please leave a positive comment on my blog.

The third largest land animal on earth and native to Africa, the Hippopotamus. This mammal lives on water and land, they live in the South Sarahan, Africa. They can stay underwater for five minutes. Hippos are mostly herbivorous and eat grass (about 35 kilograms) and fruits. Hippos have a large body, short legs, short tali, and a huge head. Hippos weight 1,400kg – 4,500kg and their height is 10.8 and 16.5 feet.

Hippos are in groups with 10 – 30 individuals in it. It is called a herd or bloat. The leader of the herd is a dominant male leader. The rest are females with their younger hippos. Females hippos (who are called called cows) give birth to baby hippos and gather up with other cows to protect their babies. They protect their babies and fight off the predators by splashing water and using their massive size as their advantage.

These hippos are not endangered yet but exposed to extinction. 115,000 – 130,000 hippos are still living in the wild. Due to their habitat loss and hunting, their population went down. Luckily the laws have been restricted and this helped the hippopotamuses population. They also live in protected areas in East African countries.

In conclusion, Hippopotamuses are mammals, water and land animals. They have a herbivorous diet. They stay in herds and have one male leader. East African countries have some protected areas for hippos.
