Hippopotamus dies at Nandankanan
According to the Deputy Director of Nandankanan Zoo, the larger male hippo does not allow the smaller hippos to come near it. The Nandankanan authorities had tried to put up underwater barricades to tackle the problem. However, the hippos brought down the barricades.
The death of the amphibian animal has brought down the hippo population in the Nandankanan Zoological Park to 13 including five male hippos.
