Hippos Are Horses Too !







Hippos


 

Hippo means horse.
Horse?
Yes, and the whole meaning of the hippos' long scientific name is river 
horse
.

Since horses are gifts of the Sea God, and since hippos are not only horses, 
but also water babies - albeit, very big ones! - they're 
a natural for Eco Magazine !

Horses are usually either much, much smaller - like our SeaHorses, 
or they're much, much slenderer, like the usual horses we know and adore, 
who run across inland seas of grass, but hippos are remarkable, powerful, 
and very interesting!
