Only in St Lucia

Posted on Fri May 22, 2015.

St Lucia must be the only place in the world where the hippos regularly visit the village. Although they are extremely dangerous, people and hippo have lived side to side in St Lucia for many years.

Although Hippo are extremely dangerous animals, and are known to have caused the most deaths in Africa, the St Lucia Hippo Town Folk seem quite used to people.  As long as their space is respected and people do not get to close to them, they seemed quite bored with the attention and usually just carry on grazing.

Hippo usually come out after dark to graze on the sweet lawns of St Lucia.  Lately we have noticed quite a few already visiting town in day broad light.
