Hippopotamus

Previous Index Next

Hippos are active at night and therefore difficult to observe. During the day they stay in the water and do not move much. Although they are herbivores they cause most of the fatal accidents in the parcs because when they are grunting and yawning you do not necessarily think they are aggressive. Then the animals attack their opponents and you'll have problems, being only a human being.
