Hippos are social animals that typically live in groups, known as pods or bloats, of up to 30 individuals. These groups are usually made up of females, their offspring, and a dominant male. The dominant male is responsible for defending the group's territory, which can range from a few hundred meters to several kilometers along a river or lake.

Within the group, hippos have a hierarchical social structure, with dominant individuals having priority access to resources such as food and water. Female hippos are generally more social than males, and they tend to be the primary caregivers for their young.

Despite their size and fearsome reputation, hippos are herbivorous and primarily feed on grasses and other vegetation. They spend much of their day submerged in water, and they are excellent swimmers, able to hold their breath for up to 5 minutes at a time.

Hippos are also an important part of the ecosystem in which they live. They help to maintain waterways by creating channels and paths through vegetation, and their dung provides nutrients for other aquatic and terrestrial species.

However, hippos can also be dangerous to humans, particularly when they feel threatened or when their territories are disturbed. They are responsible for more human deaths in Africa than any other large mammal, and caution should always be exercised when in close proximity to these powerful animals.
