Although hippopotamuses cannot swim particularly well, they spend nearly all day in the water.
They cannot simply drift along, because they're just too heavy. If they wish to cross a river, they allow themselves to sink to the bottom and walk along the river bed to the other shore.
Fun Fact: Hippopotamuses can hold their breath underwater for up to 30 minutes.
