Only in Colombia (again)

The headline in Medellín’s paper yesterday says: Hippopotamuses are allegedly being trafficked in Puerto Nare  [a municipality in Antioquia].

If you remember, the hippos roaming in the wild of Colombia are descendants of the ones imported by Pablo Escobar in the late 1970s for his private zoo.

By the way, the internet tells me that the usage hippopotami is “now taken to be funny or absurdly pedantic”.
