I wanna talk about hippos
GET FUCKED YOU ONE LEGGED WHORE
blue board asshole!
why's it called a hippo?
From Hippo(Horse in greek) and potamus(river, in greek), so they translated name would be River horses.
Why haven't we selectively bred albino hippos for Moominland?
Why do baby hippo look so weird. I can't put my finger on it.
Because they don't have horns
her leg is fucked, she will need to amputate it.
Baby hippos are the cutest mammal but once they grow up they are not only ugly as shit but are a fucking tank of nature, a true beast of power
That's a baby pygmy hippo. Those also look pretty cute as adults.
You can kinda see how hippos are the closest land based relatives of whales from that pic.
>I can remind you why you're third
>Using a rhino's horn to scratch the interior of your lower lip
"try it, you damn dirty lard elemental"
How are hippos even a thing?
They figured out that getting xboxhueg makes you immune to predation.
Watching hippos eating watermelons is so satisfying
>Watching hippos eating watermelons is so satisfying
it's fucking awful, though
Sure, you can go full monke mode, smash it and eat bits and pieces off the floor or take a fancy knife, carve a slice and nibble on it like a complete poof,
but (You) will NEVER experience the absolute and primal state of utter R E F R E S H M E N T by popping an entire god damn watermelon in your mouth
Not with the same taste, but there are plenty of fruits you can pop into your mouth like that, rind/skin and all.
this amount of coping is not healthy
there's not a single plant on god's green earth that can rival the almighty watermelon's succulent sploosh factor
t. double Phd. in Freshness
Not with that attitude.
Watermelons were created, and we can make a bite-sized version.
this. hippos mog us to oblivion, especially in terms of refreshment
lol is the lion doing any damage at all, the hippo only gave a shit about the car that was on his way
whats going on here between the lions and the hippo? Are the lions genuinelly hoping to take him down or to wait until its exhausted?
To the hippo, the lion attack probably feels like comfortable scrachting. Lions can not kill healthy adult hippos. The lioness is in the process of learning this, and the other lions are observing.
What the heck was his problem?
Lions where biting and scratching him.
It's cute how baby Pygmies move their whole head to eat.
>filename isn't feedingLeslieJones.webm
Now that's a mouth my dick can fit in
When your Nintendo Switch comes arrives from Amazon.
You spend too mich time on the Internet fren.
I wanna rub its tongue
Wtf is it doing
Trying to get the melon deeper in its mouth so it won't spill half of the melon's juice when it chomps down.
I believe it is eating a watermelon in the water.
imagine being able to fully chomp your gf's thighs like that
He looks like a muppet
any videos of hippos killing humans?
always hear about how dangerous they are but I've never seen it happen
>*barrels towards you with murderous intent*
Run for my life
should get a fuchs gun instead, for those times when you get charged by more than 2 hippos
i dont really care that theyre exquiste guns, they are good though, double barrel bolt action is kino
>olmecchads managed to wipe out megafauna 10x bigger and deadlier than hippos with these
>virtually no African megafauna ever went extinct
Africucks... we jobbed again
olmecs were newcomers, africans were natives. Do you know that feeling when youre living somewhere and you just cant be assed to fix that one thing since it would mean going outside your comfort zone, but when you move somewhere new, you suddenly start tryharding to fix everything because everything already is outside your comfort zone so fixing everything doesnt feel anyhow more difficult than the usual?
The first africans to see the americas were spanish slaves. Stop coping, and keep on working on the cotton field
I Jump over him while he charges at ne
He's hit the wall, lose a gig at on of HP and becomes stunned
I hit him until he's either dead
Or out of stun effect
beby hippos are cute
Hippos chew on live crocodiles for fun.
Teething baby hippos will use live crocs as chew toys
And the crocs just have to take it because any form of resistance will result in immediate death
They've been getting cocky now that the king has disappeared
Does he have babbies.
Back in 1910 the US Congress almost passed a bill to introduce hippos into the Mississippi.
Are you against diversity anon??? You need to cool it with the antisemitism.
To cull the human population.
There was a meat shortage at the time so it was figured they could be used as water cows. Also an invasive species of plant was growing out of control. It was hoped that the hippos would eat up the water hyacinth.
What does a hippo taste like?
Like fatty pork I guess
Taste a little like beef, really good when marinated and grilled, it's a real delicacy, i was lucky to taste it once.
Because brushing the teeth and gums keeps them healthy and feels good
Listen, you can either make war with the water cow that can fucking murder you in seconds or you can give it one or two LESS reasons to kill you.
Yeah, fucking why did they end up not passing it?
Are there still hippos in Mississippi???
i wish i had a asian person cleaning my teeth
The person who wrote this has never met a Cajun. Those crazy fuckers would be killing those hippos with pocket knives
>hearts of iron 4
Little did they know access to McDonald’s would naturally attract hippos to the area
Your excuse, Brits.
not a bong but they could just see hippos in their african colonies, and besides, are there that many rivers in england in the first place? it's kinda small
Go to the Walmart in Vicksburg and you might think that it passed.
Pygmy hippos are cute!
Hippos are cool, I presume that's where they got the name. From being hip (old term for cool).
In the late 1970s, Colombian drug lord Pablo Escobar kept four hippopotamuses in a private menagerie at his residence in Hacienda Nápoles, 100 kilometres (62 mi) east of Medellín, Colombia. They were deemed too difficult to seize and move after Escobar's death, and hence left on the untended estate.
By 2007, the animals had multiplied to 16 and had taken to roaming the area for food in the nearby Magdalena River. In early 2014, there were reported to be 40 hippopotamuses in Puerto Triunfo, Antioquia.
The estimated population in December 2019 was around 90–120, with their range covering around 2,250 km2 (870 sq mi) and now extending into Santander; it is expected that the population will almost certainly increase to more than 150 individuals within a decade and could reach up to more than 200 hippos, while the range eventually could cover more than 13,500 km2 (5,200 sq mi). Population projections estimate that there could be thousands within a few decades. The Colombian hippos reach sexual maturity earlier than African hippos.
I never understood why these were never put down. Seems like a dangerous situation to let multplymv
They tried too, and after posting an image of one dead the public went insane so now the government made them a protected species
>10 heartbreaking images that will make you go "fuck having ecological balance and native species and sheeeiiiiit"
native species are a meme anyway.
native species allow you to eat your daily goyslop
The locals like them, they apparently bring in tourist bucks, and they don't give a shit/ don't know about the damage they could cause.
Wish there is someone who will dump hippos in my country as well.
Won't there be a severe inbreeding problem?
>Why scientists want to kill Colombia's hippos
>"It is obvious that we feel sorry for these animals, but as scientists we need to be honest," Colombian biologist Nataly Castelblanco, one of the study's authors, told the BBC. "Hippos are an invasive species in Colombia and if we do not kill a part of their population now, the situation could be out of control in just 10 or 20 years."
>if we do not kill a part of their population now, the situation could be out of control in just 10 or 20 years."
Hmmmm sounds familar
More like the absolute state of America and Europe
>NOOO THESE HIPPOS ARE INVASIVE WE NEED TO KILL THEM BEFORE THEY DAMAGE THE ENVIRONMENT
>lol sure mcdonalds, you can cut down all our rainforests for your beef ranches lmao we're not using them
>40 years and a subspecies with younger sexual maturity has already been mutated
What the fuck? Was it the heavy inbreeding?
Probably because there is more shit to eat in a tropical jungle then some muddy watering hole in africa.
Question, if an adult hippo lost all it's teeth, what would it's bite do to me, am I still fucked?
it would swallow you whole like those funny internet pictures
Interested in an elaborate answer as well
I wanna talk about hippos
it may not puncture the skin, but it still has all that brute force. so you'd probably get a crush/compression injury.
It would still have a lot of force behind it and hurt you
>drops all the juicy pulp
>saves the rind
Man, sentience really turned us humans into some picky fucking eaters. Imagine someone gave you a watermelon and you just chomped into the rind.
Unlike us hippos can digest cellulose so the rind is the nutritious bit for them.
you can pickle the rind (don't forget to peel it)
Nah, our digestive system sucks a lot, like we can barely even eat raw meat anymore
Hippos are sentient, fucktard
Still one of the dumbest mammals
You’re being way too hard on them, but that’s typical of a retard with articulate hands & a shit digestive system.
it most likely licked the pulp from the floor
If an axe is dull, will it still hurt?
it would be extremely painful
