Looking Out For Hippos

16x12 pastel on paper

The leading cause of death by animal attack in Africa is not lions or crocodiles, but hippopotamuses. They are gigantic peaceful vegetarians that feed on aquatic plants at the bottom of rivers and lakes. However, when boats disturb them, they can destroy a boat and cause serious injury or death. It is important to respect their territory and keep a lookout for them.
