Hippo teeth

What are hippo’s teeth made of?

A hippopotamus is a large semi-aquatic mammal, with short, stumpy legs, and cylindrical bodies.

It has a large head, with a broad mouth that can open wide (like a crocodile).

Hippos are herbivores because they eat plants. Their incisor and canine teeth continue to grow throughout their lives.

Their teeth are like tusks and are made of ivory.
