"Another Dissatisfied Customer!"
The huge mouth of the Hippopotamus (Hippopotamus amphibius) is second only to whales in size. It contains tusk-like canine and incisors with procumbant lower incisors. Cheek teeth grind the grasses on which it feeds, while the incisors and canines are used for defense and are ever-growing. Those tough wide lips are adept at plucking the vegetation. The hippo is a grazer, feeding on land at night on short grasses usually within a mile of water.
