Today is National Hippo Day.So, thanks to Parade Magazine, we share some hippo fast facts:

  • To protect themselves from the sun and heat, hippos create their own SPF with a mucous secretion, known as “blood sweat” due to its red color.
  • Hippos are the third-largest land mammal, only elephants and white rhinos are bigger.
