Pablo Escobar had a semi-private zoo in rural Colombia and was fascinated and obsessed by Hippos. After his death the zoo fell apart and the hippos escaped and now live wild in Columbia’s river systems. At last count I believe there were several hundred. Maybe one day they will make it to the Orinoco or even the Amazon. Obviously they could be eliminated, they are hard to miss, but they seem to be becoming kind of a tourist attraction. I wish them well!
