The hippo is an intriguing animal. They look dumb and slow, but can run fast and have a real mean streak in them. They are vegetarians, but those long sharp teeth aren't for eating plants... they are for dealing with unwelcome guests and other hippos.

Oh, and imagine a bunch of overweight vegetarians eating vegetation all day in non-moving water. The "processed" food makes for a disgusting, foul brown water that absolutely stinks.

It was as if you could walk over them... but every now and then one would open their mouth wide and I would NOT want to be there at that moment :)
