The dire hippopotamus is a large and terrifying beast with sword-like tusks capable of tearing through boats. A dire hippopotamus spends most of its time submerged, only leaving the water to feed, but when it is disturbed, it is a ferocious and incredibly aggressive beast that the wise avoid and that only the foolish deliberately aggravate.
