Funani, an African river hippo at the San Diego zoo, gives her female calf, Jazi, a little nudge as they swim. The hippopotamus – Greek for "river horse" – is a semi-acquatic mammal that spends much of its time keeping cool in the water. The creatures appear more graceful and even elegant when fully submerged, but their enormous size means an adult hippo can often get by just by walking or standing on a lake or river bed.

Hippopotamus (Hippopotamus amphibius), found in the rivers and lakes of Uganda, Sudan, Somalia, Kenya, northern Democratic Republic of the Congo and Ethiopia, west through Ghana to Gambia, and also in Botswana, Republic of South Africa, Zimbabwe, and Zambia--a separate population exists in Tanzania and Mozambique. The species is not yet endangered but is considered vulnerable to eventual extinction unless loss of habitat is corrected.
