Even though this hippo looks quite friendly they are one of the worst tempered animal in the world. So you really don't want to approach one on your own.
They also have a bad habit of using their tail to fling their poop far and wide, and when they perspire it is red which makes it look like they sweat blood.
Happy Hippopotamus Day!
