Chicot the Hippo

Not all Hippos are quite as cute and cuddly as they look, (the same could also be said about Teddy Bears, but a billion soft toys can’t be wrong) and they have a reputation as one of the most aggressive animals in the world, and one of the most dangerous in Africa.

Despite his huge size and little legs a hippo on land can be pretty nimble and could easily out run a man. They can reach speeds of up to 25 miles per hour, and so it really isn’t a good idea to get too close or to call them names.

Hippos have a very loud voice and will bellow both through the air and under the water to communicate. Accounts of singing are not widely documented, and guitar playing skills are also considered pretty rare.  

Hippopotamus translates into river horse.

The average life time for a Hippo is around 30 to 40 years ...unless they are a Rock Star. (Diet, Botox, and a Hydrophonic Chamber work wonders).
