THE HUNT FOR ESCOBAR'S HIPPOS

Africa is the only natural home of hippos, but because of the whim of a notorious, 20th century narcotics trafficker, the massive beasts have a new home now, 6,000 miles and one ocean away.

 

Discover the story of how hippos came to Colombia, South America as part of drug kingpin Pablo Escobar's exotic (and illegal) zoo, and how they escaped from his ranch after his death and have since gone rogue.
