Wildlife Poaching In Africa
Hippopotamus is the world’s third largest land mammal and the two species are both found in Africa. The large hippo is found in East Africa while the Pygmy species lives in West Africa. It’s found in swamps, lakes and rivers where they may be submerged for up to 16 hours during the day and graze on land at dusk. There are only 1,500 Pygmy hippos left due to deforestation and hunting.
