Informational Report Structure !

Informational Report – Hippopotamus

Introduction ;
Hippopotamuses are mammals, water and land animals. They have a herbivorous diet. They stay in herds and have one male leader. East African countries have some protected areas for hippos. 
Body para 1 ;
The third largest land animal on earth and native to Africa, the Hippopotamus. This mammal lives on water and land, they live in South Sarahan, Africa. They can stay underwater for five minutes. Hippos are mostly herbivorous and eat grass (about 35 kilograms) and fruits. Hippos have a large body, short legs, short tali, and a huge head. Hippos weigh 1,400kg – 4,500kg and their height is 10.8 and 16.5 feet. 
Body para 2 ;
Hippos are in groups with 10 – 30 individuals in it. It is called a herd or bloat. The leader of the herd is a dominant male leader. The rest are females with their younger hippos. Female hippos (who are called cows) give birth to baby hippos and gather up with other cows to protect their babies. They protect their babies and fight off the predators by splashing water and using their massive size as their advantage. 
Body para 3 ;
These hippos are not endangered yet but exposed to extinction. 115,000 – 130,000 hippos are still living in the wild. Due to their habitat loss and hunting, their population went down. Luckily the laws have been restricted and this helped the hippopotamus population.  They also live in protected areas in East African countries. 
Conclusion ;
Hippos aren’t endangered yet but vulnerable to extinction. 115,00 – 130,000 common hippos remain in the wild.  Due to habitat loss and hunting their population went down but since laws have been restricted their population has improved. When they fight they use their gigantic mouths and hit and splash water.
