Moto Moto is a fat, handsome, muscular, big-bellied hippopotamus, with a deep voice who loves to play hide and seek with the girl hippos. He's not extremely bright, but he's sweet and is a ladies' man. He's described by him as being "aggressive but friendly," and is the way the standard male hippo should look. He falls in love with Gloria and she is delighted. But later as they have their date in a lake, he confesses that the only reason he really loves her is for her big belly. Gloria accepts this until Melman shows up and tells him everything Gloria likes and hates. Gloria and Moto Moto may be over, but still remain friends. Moto Moto means "hot hot" in the English language (Melman frequently mispronounces his name, mostly on purpose to annoy or insult him).
