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!
