Mangaluru: The newest entrant to the Pilikula Biological Park is a ten-and-half-year-old African hippopotamus, named Kaveri.

She was brought from Bengaluru Bannerghatta National Park. Two more hippos will come to Pilikula by the end of the next week.

Apart from the hippos, a female tiger, gray langurs, jackals and wild goat will also be added to the park’s population, Park Director Jayaprakash Bhandari said.
