For many Westberliners, the hippos are the most darling animals at our Zoo - reason is, the only big animal surviving WW2 was the legendary hippopotamus guy called "Knautschke", born 1943 and died at 1988, due to bad injuries from a rivaling fight with his own son. He had to be put to sleep at the age of 46, but he had a great life I think, the father of 30 little hippos ;D
