Lol yea, when i was a toddler my mum took me too the zoo. A hippo came up to the fence turned around and started sh!tting, whilst flicking it everywhere with its tail... all over us.. who else can say they have been shat on by a Hippo ?:D
Yes...they swing them around to spread their feces actually..eewwww
Yes, they are little compared to the rest of their body, but yes.
yes they use their tails to paddle the dung to show dominance - usually done by bulls (male hippos).<br />
