Follow the cartoon key to help you draw a hippo.

The hippopotamus spends most of the time loafing, especially during the day. Grouped together, hippos sit in the mud-filled bogs or else they float for hours in the quiet water. Floating is something hippos do quite well despite their huge size.

It helps that their eyes, ears and nose are atop their head and snout.
No other animal (such as the rhino or elephant) takes to the water like the hippo, which is actually born under water. A hippo can even walk on the bottom of the lake. After dark, hippos leave the water and may travel miles to their feeding grounds, where they eat grass and other plants.
