My Hippopotamus Hones Multiplication Skills


Hippos (as they are more commonly known) are considered the second-largest land animal on Earth, second only to the elephant. They can weigh up to 7,000 lbs (3200 kg), which is as much as three small cars! To make sure they’re eating enough to keep up this massive reputation, they mastered multiplication.
