The third largest land mammal, hippopotamuses, or hippos for short, are semi-aquatic herbivorous creatures than can be found in southern Africa. Feared for their size and aggression, hippos are extremely dangerous, especially when defending their territories or calves.

Characteristics: Barring its tusks, this hippo is letting out a mighty roar! This hand-painted and scientifically precise figurine captures all of the defining traits of this incredible mammal, including its large size, aggressive demeanor, huge tusks, and even the dark red substance produced by their skin to protect them from the harsh African sun.
