Rhino! (Rhinos are very powerful runners, despite their large/heavy size. Can reach up to 45 mph in 5 seconds, with how much they weigh, they could knock over a safari truck. -Learned this on my safari excursion in the Huluhuwe Resort in South Africa)
Plump hippo rest and warm their bloated bodies in the sunshine, their oversized bodies belie a speed and agility for these territorial animals, responsible for many human deaths in Africa. However this is not to say that hippo’s are after ‘human blood’, they are strict herbivores, but unfortunately human encounters with hippo are frequent, simply because humans require water as do hippos.

The hippopotamus is capable of running 19mph over short distances. Adult hippos move at speeds up to 5mph in the water; typically resurfacing every 3 to 5 minutes. While sleeping under water, the hippo rises to breathe without waking.
Hippo Charge on Chobe River Jan2015, recorded with iPhone 6; Botswana, Awesome but crazy dangerous. Whoa! Great capture! Who knew hippos were so fast in the water. Never underestimate their speed to their massive size. As a matter of fact, hippos have killed more humans than any other animals in Africa!...
These cards include 7 grassland animals: llama, hippo, dingo, cape hunting dog, meerkat, emu, and mongoose. These cards contain the diet, habitat, size, speed and interesting facts for each animal. Great for students to learn with and to practice categorizing
