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 peaceful, friendly river creatures that may appear on a map in groups of three to seven. When riled, however, they can be incredibly deadly due to their large size and tendency to knock or herd dwarves into rivers.

Since they can become very tall and heavy (~ 1.5 tons), they are a great food source when butchered. They may also be a great source of occupied coffins.

Unlike their real world counterparts, hippos do not have particularly thick hides compared to other animals their size.

Hippos have a respectable pet value of 400 and make lovely hard-to-kill pets.
