The common hippo is classified as Vulnerable (VU) by the IUCN, and the pygmy hippo is classified as Endangered (EN).
Hippos are highly aggressive and unpredictable animals, and they are ranked among the most dangerous animals in Africa. Nevertheless, they are still threatened by habitat loss and poaching for their meat and ivory canine teeth.
