Hippos are herbivores, which means they only eat plant life. Their favorite food is short grass. They can eat up to 150 lbs of it each day. However, if you think they eat alot, you're wrong. The Average cow eats more in a day than the average hippo. Hippos normally only venture out during nights to graze and may go up to 6 miles from the water.
