The common hippopotamus (Hippopotamus amphibius), or hippo, is a large, mostly herbivorous, semiaquatic mammal and ungulate native to sub-Saharan Africa. It is one of only two extant species in the family Hippopotamidae, the other being the pygmy hippopotamus (Choeropsis liberiensis or Hexaprotodon liberiensis). The name comes from the ancient Greek for "river horse" (ἱπποπόταμος).
Move is the debut album by The Move, released on the Regal Zonophone label. The only one which was recorded by the group’s initial line-up before bassist Ace Kefford left, it includes both sides of their third and fourth singles ("Flowers in the Rain" and "Fire Brigade"). Flowers in the Rain" was the first ever song played on Radio 1 in September 1967 by Tony Blackburn.
The Hippos is the third and final album by the Los Angeles, California rock band The Hippos, released in 2003 by Olympic Records and Fanscape Music. It was released posthumously after their breakup in 2002. The material for the album had been recorded in 2000 after the departure of original drummer Kyle Briggs, but even while working on it the other band members had begun to drift into other musical projects and eventually the album was shelved and the group disbanded.

Pygm hippos are usually totally ignored. Everybody thinks hippos are cool – and deals only with Hippopotamus amphibius. Even zoos tend to have the bigger species, partly because the pygm hippo is much rarer and used to be much harder to get. However, for the same space and cost, you can keep a much larger number of pygm hippo. .Here’s the inside enclosure in Berlin, two parts with some dry land area and a lot of water each.
Hippos are semi-aquatic animals. They inhabit in rivers, mangrove swamps, and lakes. Hippos spend most of their time in water and move to land during night time. In some cases female hippos give birth in water, and they have to guide their newborn to the land. When baby hippos are ready, the mother will teach them to swim. But baby hippos can only stay under water for half a minute. Since hippos are mammals, baby hippos depend on their mother for survival for a year. Though baby hippos can eat grass after three weeks, they still rely on milk for six to eight months.
Though hippos move easily through the water, they can't actually swim. According to the San Diego Zoo, these animals glide through the water by pushing themselves off other objects. And they can stay under water for up to 5 minutes without coming up for air, according to National Geographic. Female hippos have a gestation period of eight months and have only one baby at a time, according to the San Diego Zoo. At birth, the calf weighs between 50 and 110 lbs. (23 to 50 kg). For its first eight months, the calf nurses while its mother is on land, or it swims underwater to suckle. When it dives, the calf closes its nose and ears to block out water. All hippos have this.
Hippos move easily in water, either swimming by kicking their hind legs or walking on the bottom. They are well-adapted to their aquatic life, with small ears, eyes and nostrils set at the top of the head. Hippos have a flexible social system defined by hierarchy and by feed and water conditions. Usually they are found in mixed groups of about 15 individuals, but in periods of drought large numbers are forced to congregate near limited pools of water. This overcrowding disrupts the hierarchical system, resulting in even higher levels of aggression, with the oldest and strongest males most dominant.
