B.  Animal Kingdom

Several hippos are submerged in this pool along the safari route. Hippos stay submerged in water or mud during the day to escape the heat. Elephants are the only other land animals that are consistently larger than hippos. Although they are vegetarians and appear docile, hippos are among the most aggressive and dangerous of all mammals.
