My animal is a hippopotamus. Hippopotamus's live in a fresh water habitat. There environment is being efected by climate change. Hippos live in Africa, so it's always summer there. it's being efected by climate change so it's water levels are lowering. Hippos are about 7 feet tall and 9-14 feet long. In the future, hippos are smaller about 4-5 feet tall and 5-7 feet long. They're smaller because the water is lowering and hippos spend up to 15 hours a day underwater. So, if there too big to be mostly under water, hippos will have to get smaller.
