Escobar’s Hippos

Pablo_escobar Cowscapes by Rachael Sudlow

Pablo Escobar lived in a 5,500-acre estate 100 miles east of Medellin, Colombia. He built a bullring, an airstrip, an ersatz Jurassic Park with half a dozen immense concrete dinosaurs. He stocked a private wild animal park with hundreds of animals, including elephants, camels, giraffes, ostriches and zebras. He installed four hippos in one of the estate's 12 man-made lakes.

Today, Hacienda Napoles is in ruins, taken over by jungle foliage and bats. But the hippos are still here
