Photo's description:
The hippopotamus (Hippopotamus amphibius) or hippo (Greek: ??�???????????�?�?????�, hippopotamos, from ??�???????�, hippos, "horse" and ?????�?�?????�, potamos, "river") is a large, mostly plant-eating African mammal. The hippopotamus is semi-aquatic, inhabiting rivers and lakes in sub-Saharan Africa in groups of 5-30 hippos. The hippopotamus also uses water to keep itself hydrated and able to carry out his life functions. During the day they remain cool by staying in the water or mud. They emerge at dusk to graze on grass. This photo was taken in Rwindi National Park, part of the immense National park of Virunga, in the Democratic Republic of Congo.Digitized slide.
