Hippos spend up to 16 hours a day submerged in rivers and lakes to keep their massive bodies cool under the hot African sun. Hippos are graceful in water, good swimmers, and can hold their breath.

    Hippos are closely related to whales and other cetaceans. Diet and Behavior: Hippos are herbivores (plant-eaters). They are nocturnal (they are most active at night). Hippos spend the day resting and cooling off in shallow water, emerging from the water at night to graze on grass. Hippos cans stay underwater for up to 5 to 6 minutes. Over millions of years, many species of hippos existed. Some were as small as the pygmy hippos, but most were somewhere in between the size of pygmy and common hippos. The native ranges of these early hippos expanded across Africa and into the Middle East and Europe. Fossils of hippos have even turned up has far north as England.

    One lonely hippo calls up two friends for what eventually becomes a huge, night-long hippopotamus party. In this rhyming counting book, the guests arrive in groups of increasing number (two hippos, then three, and so on) and, when the party is over, leave in groups of decreasing number/5(13).   Hippos are huge, graceful and dangerous, as depicted in this colorful, informative book for the youngest the cover image of a hippo's gaping maw and the pink endpapers resembling the interior of the hippo's mouth, readers understand that they will be immersed in details about the unusual creature.5/5(1).
