「カバ」の正しい英語の言い方は「hippopotamus」(発音:ヒポポタマス)ですが、会話で「hippo」(発音:ヒポー)という省略を使います。

動物園で見る動物
rhinoceros/ rhino = さい
giraffe = キリン
elephant = 象
zebra = シマウマ
lion = ライオン
tiger = トラ
gorilla = ゴリラ
monkey = 猿
chimpanzee/chimp = チンパンジー
polar bear = ホッキョクグマ
seal = アザラシ

「カバ」は「hippopotamus」または「hippo」と言えると思います。
「hippopotamus」は「hippo」の省略です。


【例】

Hippos kill more people in Africa than any other animal.
〔Mirror.co.uk-Sep 18, 2016〕

アフリカで一番人を殺している動物はカバです。


回答は一例ですので、参考程度でお願いします。

hippopotamus noun /ˌhɪp.əˈpɒt.ə.məs/
plural hippopotamuses /ˌhɪp.əˈpɒt.ə.mə.sɪz/or hippopotami /ˌhɪp.əˈpɒt.ə.maɪ/

A Hippopotamus (Hippo) is a very large animal with short legs and thick, dark grey skin that lives near water in Africa and grazes on swamp vegetation. They cause considerable damage by trampling on plants because of their enormous body weight.

Eg: I saw an enormous hippo at the zoo today.
I saw an enormous hippopotamus at the zoo today.
I saw three hippopotami at the zoo today.

This little guy, I say little I mean big, has two names. The proper one, I suppose, is hippopotamus. But we like to shorten it to Hippo, it is easier.

And origins of the name are as follows:
Middle English: via Latin from Greek hippopotamos, earlier hippos ho potamios ‘river horse’ (from hippos ‘horse’, potamos ‘river’).

Learn something new everyday.

Try one out, see how it goes, and find the one that suits you.

I hope that helps.
Have a great day.

こんにちは。

「かば」は英語で hippopotamus と言いますが、
長いので hippo と略して言うことがほとんどです。

下記は例文ですのでぜひ参考にしてください。

Have you ever seen a hippo before?
かばを見たことはありますか?

ぜひ参考にしてください。
