2,700 kilograms is about seven-tenths as heavy as a Hippopotamus
In other words, it's 0.720 times the weight of a Hippopotamus, and the weight of a Hippopotamus is 1.390 times that amount.
(Hippopotamus amphibius) (adult, male)
The average weight of an adult male hippopotamus ranges from 3,000 to 4,500 kg. Appearances to the contrary, adult hippos cannot swim or float in water; they actually move by leaping and walking across lake bottoms at about 8 kph (5 mph).
