Weighing in at over a ton and a half, you wouldn't think this massive mammal is a paragon of grace. Waddling around the grasslands, built like an overturned pickle barrel, words like "agile" and "nimble" just don't come to mind.Yet a hippo can run faster than you or I (especially I!). They can sleep underwater and come up for air every few minutes without waking up! If you aren't a Hippo, don't try that at home! Don't even try that in a swamp! Yes, Hippos make up for their lack of grace by being generally amazing. Whether you want to rule the pool or just control the couch, this Hippo says, "you can do it!"
