February 2019

Happy World Hippo Day! To celebrate our hippo love, here are some of our favourite hippos on the internet, real and otherwise. You can read about them all and many more wonderful, strange, endlessly fascinating hippos in Obaysch: A Hippopotamus in Victorian London by John Simons.

As well as telling the story of one hippopotamus, Simons considers how hippos and other "exotic" animals have been seen and treated in Europe through the centuries, and how this shifted during the Victorian era.
