Although they are herbivores, hippopotamuses are considered as Africa's wildest animals because of their aggressive nature. When they are out of the water, hippos are able to run up to 50 km per hour. They have an influence on the course of rivers and swamps by using the very same walking paths day after day and thus diverting the water into these furrows.
Hippos spend daytime in the water and graze in the evening. Within only five hours, a hippo is able to devour more than 70 kg of food. In the water, the males are very keen on defending their territory; however, there is no rivalry once they are ashore. Although they cannot swim, hippos fight, sleep and mate in the water. They live in pods of approximately thirty individuals.
With a length of more than five meters and weighing up to two tons, hippos rank among the largest land mammals. They can grow quite old – often up to forty years.

The horns of a Texas Longhorn bull can reach over four feet in length.
Prized for their beauty and intelligence, Texas Longhorns are a unique breed with much to offer. Sold for choice genetics, these cows are often bred with others to benefit those breeds with easier birthing or leaner beef. Texas Longhorn cattle have strong instincts and are very tough. They can live in arid areas, feeding on weeds and cactus, for long periods of time. Protected by their mother, these calves are exceptionally strong when born and begin walking very soon after birth.

Moose's antlers fully grow within three to five months, making them one of the fastest growing organs in animals.
Known as elk in Europe, moose are the largest of all the deer family. These large animals have elaborate forking antlers and long dark brown hair. They live in northern forests where alder, aspen, and willows abound. Moose are particularly well adapted to cold weather and prefer to live where summer temperatures don't get any hotter than sixty degrees. They eat newly grown leaves, as well as the tips of twigs. Their twelve sets of broad teeth at the rear of the mouth, six pairs of molars and six pairs of premolars, help them grind up even the toughest woody plants. Their rutting (or breeding) season lasts from early September to late October. Each year during the rut they lose their antlers; they then re-grow another set during the winter that follows. Most of the year, moose stay away from people, but during rutting season they've been known to charge people, cars, and even houses!

Faster than most sports cars, the cheetah can reach speeds of almost seventy miles per hour from a dead stop in three seconds.
Active during the day, cheetahs reside in the same areas as the nighttime hunters, lions and leopards. While the cubs live with their mother, adult males live together in small groups. The secret of the cheetah's speed is in its backbone, nostrils, tail and claws. Long and flexible, this bone stretches and contracts like a spring as it sprints across the savannah. Its large nostrils allow for more oxygen intake. Helping steer, its long tail serves as a rudder, and its claws act as cleats. Preying on gazelles and antelope, the mother cheetah has to make a kill every day to feed her young. Used to blend in with tall grasses, the cheetah has black spots on its tan body, but its tail is covered with stripes.
