After a couple of years focused on prehistoric creatures, I'm coming around again to go through with another round of animals. Having started with a rhino last time around, I felt a hippopotamus would be an appropriate way to start off.

If you want to see them they're here. I haven't posted them on STS since the focus here is more on modern animals.

Well done, such a gorgeous sculpture! It really looks like one of those scientific models, that are used in museums and such. Amazing cheers

Did you know? The river hippopotamus isthe animal emblem of the country of Togo. The main reason is the hippo stands up to the two biggest predators of Africa, the lion and the crocodile. In that country, when they talk about someone's courage, they say:"He/she is better than a lion; he/she is a hippopotamus".
