Thug the pygmy hippo
Adopt Thug, ZSL London Zoo's pygmy hippo.
Contrary to his name, Thug is a gentle soul who loves to swim and sleep. However he does enjoy chasing companion Nicky-noo around.
Just like most couples, they occasionally squabble over who gets what place in the heated shelter.
By adopting Thug for yourself or as a gift, you will be directly supporting ZSL’s conservation work.
Adoption packs are £32
These are posted out in an attractive presentation folder which contains: a welcome letter with fun facts about your animal, personalised certificate, one free zoo ticket, Wild About magazine and a photograph of your animal. (The price includes delivery)
