Question

Do baby hippos nurse underwater?

Answer ( 1 )

  1. Yes, they are comfortable giving birth in water or on land. If the baby is born underwater, the mother needs to push it to the surface to breathe. Newborn hippos are only able to hold their breath for about 40 seconds at a time. … Mothers nurse their babies, even underwater, for about eight months.
