Current status and distribution of the Vulnerable common hippopotamus Hippopotamus amphibius in Mozambique




Populations of the common hippopotamus Hippopotamus amphibius in Mozambique were surveyed in 2010 during a national survey of the crocodile Crocodylus niloticus. Numbers of hippos seen during aerial counts along major rivers and lake shores were corrected to allow for undercounting of groups and these data were supplemented with the results of other recent surveys. There are now estimated to be c. 3,000 hippos in Mozambique and c. 50%of these live in Lake Cabora Bassa or the Zambezi Rive
