In many ways, the endangered pygmy hippo resembles the river hippo, however they are considerably smaller and have much rounder heads. Pygmy hippos are herbivores and feed on vegetation, including succulents and fallen fruit. They are native to Côte d'Ivoire, Guinea, Liberia and Sierra Leone where their populations are being threatened by deforestation and hunting.
