How to Draw a Hippopotamus
As we all know, the Elephant and hippopotamus are two of the largest animals on the planet. Despite the fact that they eat only grass, Hippos weigh 1.5 to 3 tons. Hippos are always in the water. Only at night they go out on the land in search of lush grass, and they can eat up to 150 pounds of grass in one night. All hippos have stubby large legs, very large head, and a huge body. But this does not prevent them from running fast (19 miles per hour). Hippos typically live for around 45 years. Now let's learn how to draw a Hippopotamus step by step.
