Hippopotamus

Hippos are quite striking to see. Despite the similiarity in their appearance to pigs and other land mammals, their nearest relatives are whales. Though they look heavy and slow, hippos can outrun humans and are one of the most aggressive animals in the world. They are considered vulnerable due to poaching.
