You wouldn't, really. They are very grumpy by nature, and dangerous with it. More people in Africa are killed by hippos than any other animal.

yup kind of like moose in North America, they look sweet cuddly (sarcasm) but they are quite dangerous.

"hippopotame" is just one of those words that is weirdly satisfying to say out loud.
