Wetlands are home to amazing animals whose bodies are built for living in or near the water. Hippos, crocodiles and anacondas all have special ways of finding food, staying safe and raising their young in a watery habitat.
• the hippopotamus who weighs as much as four heavy pianos
• the bullfrog who takes in water through its skin instead of drinking
• the crocodile, a fierce hunter who roars like a lion
