Hippos occupy a clumsy, comical place in mythology, serving as hard-headed, brutish spoils. In reality, hippos are fierce and fast —classified as the most dangerous species in Africa, and able to run up to 19mph. Their closest living relatives are whales and porpoises, from which their species branched off over 60 million years ago. Despite their long tenure, three species of hippopotamus have became extinct during the Holocene — one as recently as 1,000 years ago.
