How long can a hippopotamus hold its breath underwater?

1 Answer

five minutes. Their nostrils close, and they can hold their breath for five minutes or longer when submerged. Hippos can even sleep underwater, using a reflex that allows them to bob up, take a breath, and sink back down without waking up.
