What Are Baby Hippos Called?

Answer

A baby hippopotamus is a called a calf. Hippopotamuses are found in Africa in habitats with water deep enough to protect them from overheating and sunburn. Despite their enormous size they move very gracefully underwater, their specific gravity allows them to sink and literally run along the bottom. When on land, they can also be surprisingly speedy. However the battle between males is where their power is best demonstrated, since these competitions will often result in death. They are herbivores.
