HIP­POS

Runner's World (UK) - - HUMAN RACE -

‘Al­though they def­i­nitely don’t look the part, hip­pos are great run­ners. They may weigh up to 3,600kg and have short, stumpy legs, but they can re­ally move. Hip­pos have been recorded run­ning up to 30 miles per hour on land. They also en­gage in un­der­wa­ter run­ning by push­ing off a lake bed or riverbed and then glid­ing along.’
