The hippopotamus or hippo, from the ancient Greek for river horse, is a large, mostly herbivorous mammal in sub-Saharan Africa, and one of only two extant species in the family Hippopotamidae. The other is the pygmy hippopotamus. After the elephant and rhinoceros, the hippopotamus is the third-largest type of land mammal and the heaviest extant artiodactyl.
Despite their physical resemblance to pigs and other terrestrial even-toed ungulates, their closest living relatives are cetaceans – whales, porpoises, from which they diverged about 55 million years ago.
