The absurd history of Colombia's thirty-year struggle with international drug trafficking, seen through the eyes of its most prolific drug-baron's pet hippopotamus. A tale of a ferocious, irresistible, territorial animal, Pablo Escobar, and the depths to which he and his bloat were prepared to plunge for him to become the undisputed alpha male in the most ruthless business in the world, the cocaine trade. Pablo's Hippos is told by Pablo, the alpha male of three hippopotami shipped to the country home and nerve center of Escobar's drugs empire in 1980. As the most powerful beast in Escobar's private zoo it is a story of unthinkable riches, unabated sex, political intrigue, death, destruction, corruption, treachery and the ultimate legacy of a life dedicated to crime – a hippo epidemic that nobody can stop.
