Wikipedia article

This article is about the current version of DF.
A huge, round, hairless river creature. It is a plant-eating animal but has long tusks and can be aggressive and deadly if disturbed.


Hippos are large amphibious creatures who can be found in tropical lakes and rivers, where they appear in clusters of 3 to 7 individuals. They are the largest mundane animals who may be found in freshwater, though unlike in real life, in-game hippos are benign meanderers who will rarely fight back if threatened, though they may potentially be deadly due to their large size and tendency to knock or herd dwarves into rivers. An infant hippo is known as a hippo calf.

Hippos can be captured in cage traps and trained into valuable exotic pets. Since they can become very tall and heavy (~ 1.5 tons), they are a great food source when butchered and also provide ivory. They may also be a great source of occupied coffins. Hippos take 5 years to reach their full size, considerably more than most other animals.

Some dwarves like hippos for their strength.

Admired for its strength.
