Description :

The hippopotamus or water horse is the third largest land mammal. Every year on February 15th, World Hippo Day is commemorated to raise awareness about this megaherbivorous animal. Many key factors make the hippos an integral part of the ecosystem, but these mammals are poached extensively for their meat and teeth. On this day for Hippos, let's join in the cause and create awareness by sharing our thoughts to protect and support hippos using the hashtag #HippoDay.
