Hippos & whales had a common ancestor. Weighs 4 tons. More dangerous to humans than lions and elephants ( approx 430 people are killed each year ). A bite can amputate limbs & tear animals apart 😳 They are herbivores & regarded as vulnerable species.
The word 'hippopotamus' in ancient Greek means river horse. Though they look like a water animal, hippos cant swim! They walk on the sand bank inside water 🌊. The primary reason for hippopotamus to dwell in water is to save their sensitive skin from the scroching sun ☀️. If submerged under water, they resurface every 5 minutes for air ( this even happens unconsieously while asleep ). They actually dont sweat blood. The red substance is a moisturiser and a screen that gaurds their skin from sun.

In Chinese cosmology, the Universe creates itself out of a primary chaos of material energy, organised into the cycles of Yin & Yang. That are formed into objects and lives ✨ Thus many dualities like light-dark, fire-water, male-female etc. ☯️ Developed before 4th century B.C, the concept describes how obviously opposite or contrary forces may actually be complementary, interconnected, and interdependent in the natural world. The Yin & Yang are not complete opposites. In fact, it is important that each side has a little bit of the other in it 👌
Such seemingly opposing ( but actually complementary ) forces interact to form a dynamic system. In this system the whole is greater than the parts. Everything in this infinite Universe has both the yin & yang aspects. Either of the 2 major aspects may manifest more strongly in a particular object, depending on the criterion of the observation.
