Hippopotamuses are large animals and weigh on average 2,000 to 3,000 kilograms (4,409 to 6,614 pounds). Their bodies can overheat easily and need to be cooled in water, which is why they spend most of the day submerged. They swim very well and dive for periods of about three minutes before coming up to breathe noisily. At night, and occasionally on wet overcast days, hippos leave the water to graze the vegetation. They can eat up to 60 kilograms (132 pounds) in a night, mostly feeding on a sedge that thrives on the alkaline flats close to the lake shore. Females give birth to a single calf either on land or in the water. The calf is suckled on land for the first few weeks and then in the water. Mothers are very protective and teach their young to swim and swallow.
