THE MORNING POST – RIVER HORSES

The German name for a Hippo is ‘Flusspferd’ which if translated literally mean river horse. But no matter what name they are given I think they are not ideal for riding.

And did you know that the closest living relatives of the Hippopotamidae are aquatic mammals like whales and dolphins? 😊

Enjoy your Saturday!
