Hippopotamus

High Quality Content by WIKIPEDIA articles! The hippopotamus (Hippopotamus amphibius ) or hippo , is a large, mostly plant-eating mammal in sub Saharan Africa, and one of only two extant species in the family Hippopotamidae (the other is the Pygmy Hippopotamus). The hippopotamus is the heaviest extant artiodactyl, despite being considerably shorter than the giraffe. The hippopotamus is semi-aquatic, inhabiting rivers and lakes where territorial bulls preside over a stretch of river and groups of 5 to 30 females and young. During the day they remain cool by staying in the water or mud, reproduction and childbirth both occur in water. They emerge at dusk to graze on grass. While hippopotamuses rest near each other in the water, grazing is a solitary activity and hippos are not territorial on land. Despite their physical resemblance to pigs and other terrestrial even-toed ungulates, their closest living relatives are cetaceans (whales, porpoises, etc.) from which they diverged about 55 million years ago. The common ancestor of whales and hippos split from other even-toed ungulates around 60 million years ago.

Please note that the content of this book primarily consists of articles available from Wikivoyage or other free sources online. South Africa is located at the southern tip of Africa. Every country in the world displays some diversity, but South Africa, stretching from the hippos in the Limpopo River to the penguins waddling on the Cape, takes some beating. It befits its position at the southern end of the world s most epic continent, with more types of terrain than photographers can shake their zoom lens at. There s the deserted Kalahari, Namakwa s springtime symphony of wildflowers, iconic Table Mountain and Cape Point, Kruger National Park s wildlife-stalked savannah (scene of the famous lion-buffalo-crocodile battle watched more than 40 million times on YouTube) and, running through the east of the country and into Lesotho, the Drakensberg. KwaZulu-Natal s iSimangaliso Wetland Park alone has five distinct ecosystems, attracting both zebras and dolphins. This book offers information on South Africa and Gauteng province.

Swimming With Crocodiles
19,88 € *
ggf. zzgl. Versand

From the dust of dilapidated buildings at a third world airport to the mists of Mosi-oa-Tunya (Victoria Falls), from a river boat ride on the Zambesi to a walk with elephants across a savanna, the reader moves with Chris and Carol, and then embarks with them on an adventure deep in the African bush. Unprotected by any kind of defensive weapons save the savvy of their guide, they sleep in tents at night and by day plow across the sands of the Kalahari on the hard seat of an opensided LandRover or skim over the waters of the Okivango Delta balanced in the bottom of a makoro. All to sneak up on reclusive cheetahs, follow wild dogs on their hunt for dinner, swim in a crocodile creek, pole apprehensively across a pond to avoid submerged hippos, and confront an angry bull elephant. The reader is invited to share the grit, the heat, and the inherent dangers that are quickly displaced by the raw, primitive seduction of Africa.

American Hippo (eBook, ePUB)
4,99 € *
ggf. zzgl. Versand

In 2017 Sarah Gailey made her debut with River of Teeth and Taste of Marrow, two action-packed novellas that introduced readers to an alternate America in which hippos rule the colossal swamp that was once the Mississippi River. Now readers have the chance to own both novellas in American Hippo, a single, beautiful volume.Years ago, in an America that never was, the United States government introduced herds of hippos to the marshlands of Louisiana to be bred and slaughtered as an alternative meat source. This plan failed to take into account some key facts about hippos: they are savage, they are fast, and their jaws can snap a man in two. By the 1890s, the vast bayou that was once America's greatest waterway belongs to feral hippos, and Winslow Houndstooth has been contracted to take it back. To do so, he will gather a crew of the damnedest cons, outlaws, and assassins to ever ride a hippo. American Hippo is the story of their fortunes, their failures, and his revenge.At the Publisher's request, this title is being sold without Digital Rights Management Software (DRM) applied.

Canoeing The Congo: First Source to Sea Descent...
9,95 € *
ggf. zzgl. Versand

Canoeing the Congo narrates the journey of Phil Harwood, who undertook an epic five-month solo attempt to canoe the Congo River in war-torn Central Africa. It was a historic first descent from the true source in the highlands of Zambia. Just short of 3,000 miles long, the Congo River is the eighth longest in the world and the deepest river in the world, with a flow rate second only to the Amazon. Along the way, Phil encountered numerous waterfalls, huge rapids, man-eating crocodiles, hippos, aggressive snakes and spiders' webs the size of houses. He faced endemic corruption, was arrested, intimidated, bullied, chased and he received numerous death threats. He also collapsed from malaria. The people were mostly friendly, however, and Phil received tremendous hospitality from a proud and brave people, especially from the riverside fishermen who helped him wherever they could. On one stretch of river known as The Abattoir due to its past history of cannibalism and current reputation for criminal activity, he hired four brothers with a shotgun to accompany him as bodyguards. They paddled and floated for five days and nights on the river. Common questions from locals were, ‘why haven't you cut his throat yet?’ and ‘if you don't want to do it, tell us where your camping and we'll come and do it for you ...We'll share his money.’ It was an exhilarating, terrifying and wonderful journey but Phil managed to survive, despite the odds, to tell his story. Canoeing the Congo will appeal to fans of adventurous travel writing and people who love the nature and wilderness. Phil, who is a fan of adventure stories himself, enjoys the work of Ranulph Fiennes and Bill Bryson. Phil has worked all over the world as an ex-Royal Marine Commando, ski-guide, expedition leader, outdoor instructor and development trainer. He is qualified as mountain leader, a level 4 canoe coach, a level 3 kayak coach, a rock climbing instructor, a wilderness emergency 1. Language: English. Narrator: Gareth Armstrong.
