The river hippopotamus is the third heaviest land mammal in the world, weighing up to 8000 lbs. River hippos can be found throughout Africa, south of the Sahara to Namibia and South Africa and spend much of their time underwater. River hippos are considered a vulnerable species, according to the IUCN Red List of Threatened Species, and habitat loss, habitat degradation and illegal hunting serve as the primary threats to populations in the wild.
