Happiest of all the Hippos! Commonly see

Happiest of all the Hippos! Commonly seen on boat cruises into Nsumbu National Park from Ndole Bay Lodge.
The name comes from the ancient Greek for “river horse” (ἱπποπόταμος). After the elephant and rhinoceros, the hippopotamus is the third-largest type of land mammal. Despite their physical resemblance to pigs and other terrestrial even-toed ungulates, their closest living relatives are cetaceans (whales, porpoises, etc.) from which they diverged about 55 million years ago.
