Though hippos move easily through the water, they can’t actually swim but rather submerge themselves and walk on the floor.

They can’t breathe underwater but can hold their breath for around 5 minutes.

Their eyes, nostrils, and ears are all high on a Hippo’s head which enables them to keep their bodies submerged but still be able to see what is going on around them.

Cheetahs are not social cats they don’t go around in a pride as lions do. Instead, cheetahs are either solitary or one would find a female with her most recent cubs. Males (usually brothers) form coalitions which gives them the upper hand against other males.

Cheetah are daytime cats doing most of their movement and hunting during daylight hours and resting at night.

With their small eyes, rhinos have very poor eyesight and are only able to see at close range. Their sense of smell and hearing are very good making up for the bad eyesight.

White rhinos have large square mouths which are adapted to graze on grass.

White rhinos can live to be 35-40 years old. They have a gestation of approximately 16 months, and mothers give birth to one calf every 2-3 years.
