Mounted Hippo (Fullmount): Majesty of the Freshwater World

The hippopotamus, with its massive build, small eyes and impressive jaws, is undoubtedly one of the most recognizable and awe-inspiring creatures of the animal kingdom. This stuffed fullmount of a hippopotamus is an impressive tribute to this mighty freshwater animal and embodies the essence of pure, raw force of nature.

Scientifically known as Hippopotamus amphibius, the hippopotamus derives its name from the Ancient Greek terms for “river horse.” Despite this designation, the hippopotamus has more in common with whales and dolphins than with horses. These water giants are native to the rivers and lakes of sub-Saharan Africa, where they spend most of their day in the cooling waters, only letting their eyes, ears and nose stick out to keep a watchful eye on their surroundings.

A fascinating fact about the hippopotamus is that, despite its size and short legs, it can run quite fast, sometimes at speeds of up to 30 mph on land. Their powerful jaws and sharp, long teeth also make them formidable opponents to any animal that threatens their territory.

This stuffed hippo fullmount is a true artistic achievement, with meticulous attention to every detail, from the distinctive wrinkled skin to the imposing snout. Every crease, every look has been meticulously recreated to capture the true majesty of this animal.

This masterpiece will not go unnoticed in whatever space it is placed. Whether it is a focal point in a grand hallway or a striking piece in an office of a wildlife enthusiast, this stuffed hippo is guaranteed to attract attention. It is not only a conversation piece, but also a silent witness to the grandeur of nature and the wonders it produces.

Be transported to the banks of African rivers, where the sunset turns the waters orange and the deep roar of the hippo echoes in the distance. This stuffed hippo fullmount is not just a decorative object; it is a tribute to one of the most amazing creatures our planet has to offer.
