Animal of the Month: Hippos

April showers bring May flowers, but here at DesigningZoos.com, April sea turtles bring May Nile hippos.  Naturally.

The latest fact sheet focuses on everybody’s favorite awkward-on-land-but-fierce-in-the-water mammal: the Nile Hippopotamus.  Hippos live in groups of up to 30 animals and are extremely dangerous.  They spend their days soaking in the water, but stretch their legs on the riverbanks to graze in the evenings.  Because of this, DZ recommends you avoid that sunset walk along the banks of the Nile.  Learn other important facts by checking out the Animal of the Month entry, here.
