Pygmy Hippopotamus

Pygmy Hippopotamus
Habitats: Less aquatic than the large hippo their preferred habitat is thick undergrowth near rivers or streams or the border zone between rainforests and swamps. Hippos will rest for most of the day in the shade and begin to feed in late afternoon. When foraging in tropical forests they make deep paths similar to tunnels within the dense brush, when foraging in water they form canal like pathways.
