Arcane Scenery and Model Supplies presents:
The hippopotamus (Hippopotamus amphibius), or hippo, from the ancient Greek for “river horse” (Ιπποπόταμος), is a large, mostly herbivorous mammal in sub-Saharan Africa, and one of only two extant species in the family Hippopotamidae (the other is the Pygmy Hippopotamus.) The hippopotamus is the third largest land animal (after the elephant and the white rhinoceros) and the heaviest extant artiodactyl, despite being considerably shorter than the giraffe.
The hippopotamus is semi-aquatic, inhabiting rivers and lakes where territorial bulls preside over a stretch of river and groups of 5 to 30 females and young. During the day they remain cool by staying in the water or mud; reproduction and childbirth both occur in water. They emerge at dusk to graze on grass. While hippopotamuses rest near each other in the water, grazing is a solitary activity and hippos are not territorial on land.
1 model per pack.
Models are supplied unassembled and unpainted.
The DeeZee range has been designed to go with the Tooth and Claw rules set (also available from my shop). Of course, they are superb models in their own right and can be used as display pieces, in historical dioramas and are ideal conversion subjects for Fantasy and Scifi gaming.
Arcane Scenery and Models are proud to be authorised stockists for DeeZee Miniatures.
