  1. Welcome to JungleDragon, Michael! I see you already figured out how to identify species, well done. As a small improvement, it is helpful to include location details in either the title or description, that makes a spotting complete.

    Either way, as a warm welcome to the community, this photo is promoted to the homepage.

The hippopotamus, or hippo, is a large, mostly herbivorous mammal in sub-Saharan Africa, and one of only two extant species in the family Hippopotamidae . The name comes from the ancient Greek for "river horse" . After the elephant and rhinoceros, the hippopotamus is the third-largest type of land mammal and the heaviest extant artiodactyl.
