The African Hippo
"The hippopotamus is semi-aquatic, inhabiting rivers and lakes in sub-Saharan Africa in groups of 5-30 hippos. During the day they remain cool by staying in the water or mud; reproduction and childbirth both occur in water, where territorial bulls preside over a stretch of river. They emerge at dusk to graze on grass. While hippos rest near each other in territories in the water, grazing is a solitary activity and hippos are not territorial on land."From Wikipedia

Hippo Art

"The hippopotamus is recognizable for its barrel-shaped torso, enormous mouth and teeth, hairless body, stubby legs and tremendous size. It is similar in size to the
White Rhinoceros; only elephants are consistently heavier. Despite its stocky shape and short legs, it can easily outrun a human." From Wikipedia

The original pastel portrait of hippo (below) measures 26 x 37 cms.
