Pig-Hippo

This is an art of what the pig-hippo looks like today.

A Pig-Hippo, also known as a pippo, is an animal that evolved from a prehistoric Gobiatherium (a long-extinct pantodont, group of mostly herbivorous mammals that first evolved in the Palaeocene period) that survived and remained mostly unchanged. Its ancestors migrated from Aisa to North America to find suitable habitats in order to survive and flourish. It is similar to its ancestors and it has a similar niche to an African hippopotamus, but unlike hippopotamus, it is not aggressive, but a gentle and peaceful herbivore. It feeds on grass, shrubs, leaves, and berries. It lives in southeastern U.S. areas, including Florida.
