Pink Hippo

Posted by: Loren Coleman on September 30th, 2010

It appears a partially albino juvenile hippo has turned up in Masai Mara, Kenya, Africa. The media is claiming rare pictures of the animal have been taken. Photos of it are being published throughout the press. They are cute and I’m sure your friends will be emailing them to you soon.

They are being sourced to the Burrard-Lucas folks and you can read their original blog posting on this here.

But are they special?

Is it a pink hippo or not? The tour guides at Disney’s Wild Kingdom explain that hippo’s sweat is pink. As shown in this Disney hippo basking in the sun, he’s sweating…and appears as if he’s a pink hippopotamus!

Or perhaps it is a skin condition, as photographed on a past safari, below?

Loren Coleman is one of the world’s leading cryptozoologists, some say “the” leading living cryptozoologist. Certainly, he is acknowledged as the current living American researcher and writer who has most popularized cryptozoology in the late 20th and early 21st centuries. Starting his fieldwork and investigations in 1960, after traveling and trekking extensively in pursuit of cryptozoological mysteries, Coleman began writing to share his experiences in 1969. An honorary member of Ivan T. Sanderson’s Society for the Investigation of the Unexplained in the 1970s, Coleman has been bestowed with similar honorary memberships of the North Idaho College Cryptozoology Club in 1983, and in subsequent years, that of the British Columbia Scientific Cryptozoology Club, CryptoSafari International, and other international organizations. He was also a Life Member and Benefactor of the International Society of Cryptozoology (now-defunct). Loren Coleman’s daily blog, as a member of the Cryptomundo Team, served as an ongoing avenue of communication for the ever-growing body of cryptozoo news from 2005 through 2013. He returned as an infrequent contributor beginning Halloween week of 2015. Coleman is the founder in 2003, and current director of the International Cryptozoology Museum in Portland, Maine.
