Fun Fact:

Hippos sweat turns red after a few minutes in the sun and serves as a natural sun block.

Drawing Notes:

Our hippo is coming up out of the water towards the right side of the page. His nose is at the top of the page and his mouth is wide open. As you go down the right side of the page, watch out for the large canine tooth sticking up from his lower jaw. If you follow the shape down the left side from his nose, you can feel a small bump for the eyebrow, then his ears stick out to the side. We left two dots out to the right of his ears to indicate his eyes.

Fun facts:

Hippos have teeth that can be 20 inches long.
