In the past it was believed that Hippos bonded with each other in water. Experts today believe that they do end up very close to each other in the water, yet they often aren't communicating with each other while there. They are individualistic and will put their own needs and the needs of their offspring before any other hippo around them. They can become very territorial in the water too, which makes it hard for the younger ones to find their own space.
