The common hippopotamus Hippopotamus amphibius , or hippo , is a large, mostly herbivorous mammal in sub-Saharan Africa , and one of only two extant species in the family Hippopotamidae , the other being the pygmy hippopotamus Choeropsis liberiensis or Hexaprotodon liberiensis. After the elephant and rhinoceros , the common hippopotamus is the third- largest type of land mammal and the heaviest extant artiodactyl. Despite their physical resemblance to pigs and other terrestrial even-toed ungulates , the closest living relatives of the Hippopotamidae are cetaceans whales , porpoises , etc. The common ancestor of whales and hippos split from other even-toed ungulates around 60 million years ago. The earliest known hippopotamus fossils, belonging to the genus Kenyapotamus in Africa, date to around 16 million years ago. The hippopotamus is a highly aggressive and unpredictable animal and is ranked among the most dangerous animals in Africa. The common hippopotamus is semiaquatic , inhabiting rivers, lakes and mangrove swamps, where territorial bulls preside over a stretch of river and groups of five to thirty females and young.
