16 Hippity-Hoppity Awwdorable Hippos

Hippos are known for being one of the most confusing animals in the animal kingdom because one the one hand, hippos are so freakin' cute, and they are so adorably funny. On the other hand, they can take a bite out of your body as if you were made of butter. No joke, those chompers are ferocious.

Below, we have 15 pictures celebrating other facets of hippos! Some are babies. Some are babies with their mommas. Some are just single hippos walking around mingling (get it? singles looking to mingle? *sigh*). So long as we enjoy these hippos from afar, we can enjoy them safely and happily! And we can definitely appreciate just how adorable hippos can be!

Smooshy Sqooshy Baby Hippos (Appreciation Pics)

Here you have a collection of hippos- baby hippos. Why? Because why not? They're smooshy, sqooshy, funny, too dang adorable, and not nearly appreciated enough. 

You know us, we're the biggest animal lovers in the world, so we give love to every underappreciated animal cutie, and baby hippos are one of our favorite ones. 

You just don't expect them to be as cute as they are. They truly take you by surprise with their adorableness and make you feel like such a hippocrite for not considering how cute they are before now.

Baby Hippos Deliver Happos (12 Gifs)

Happos, the hippo version of happiness. Yes, we just made it up, and no, we aren't particularly proud of it. 

Hippos! Also known as possibly nature's most adorable murder machines. That's right. According to BBC, an estimated 500 people per year are killed by this giant and angry blob. They are known to be aggressive and very dangerous. But as we watch vids or look at pictures of baby hippos, they look so derpy and adorable, we can't help but melt. 

If we ever do come across a hippo in the wild, we will be cautious. Until then, we can admire these cute (but deadly) animals from afar.

Whoever said that hippos can't be graceful? Seems like Disney had it right in Disney's Fantasia! Those hippos can absolutely move with the grace of a ballerina! 

Turns out, hippos can do whale jumps too! Watch Hippo Fiona go crazy in their outdoor pool and celebrate with some joyful jumps. 

It totally makes sense now that whales are the closest living relative to hippos. You'll see.
