Hippos are gregarious, living in groups of up to 40 animals known as a pod, a herd, a school, or a bloat. Hippos average 11 feet in length, 5 feet tall at the shoulder and weigh up to 7000 lbs. They can run at up to 35 mph for short distances.

The second largest land mammal (after the elephant), hippos are now known to be the closest living relatives of whales.
