Wildlife | Hippopotamus Baby
Typically, a mother hippopotamus only gives birth to a single calf, although in rare cases twins do occur. Like most mammal species, infant hippopotamuses rely on their mothers for nearly everything, including protection and food. Young hippos will even ride on their mother’s back in areas where the water is too deep, in what might be one of the most adorable displays of loving motherhood in the animal kingdom. This little hippo calf would make a great pairing with one of our adult hippopotamus figurines!
