1812 Hippopotamus skeleton by Cuvier Featured Print

1812 Hippopotamus skeleton by Cuvier

Skeleton of a hippopotamus, fine folio copperplate engraving from Cuvier's "Ossamens Fossiles". Cuvier saw that the key to understanding fossils was to relate their bones to animals currently known. In this he was the father of comparative anatomy - a field that was to be crucial to the founding of modern biology. Here a hippo provides reference for the even larger bones of the extinct megafauna that was being discovered in the environs of Paris and elsewhere in Cuvier's time. Cuvier actually mistook some of the first iguanodon bone material discovered by Gideon Mantell (and shown to him by Charles Lyell) for that of a hippo, but he later changed his mind and gave Mantell credit for the discovery.

A hippos appetite means it can consume up to 60 kilograms in one night. They also often show the scars of recent conflicts due to living in close proximity
