DID YOU KNOW? -- With the exception of eating, most of a hippopotamus' life occurs in the water. Water keeps the hippo’s body temperature cool and keeps its skin from drying out. At the Fort Worth Zoo, you’ll see the hippo interacting with the water sprayer in their exhibit, which runs every few hours throughout the day in the African Savannah exhibit area.
