[Rental] Deka Monogatari - Half a Century Seen by Japan's Longest Lived Hippopotamus
[Rental available after member registration]
In 1953, there were still few hippos even in zoos. In that year, there was a hippopotamus who came to Japan at the age of one. The name is "Kabako". I had the rare experience of traveling around town in a company promotional truck. After about a year and two months, Kabako, who had grown up, was taken in by a zoo, and eventually moved to a zoo in Ishikawa Prefecture, where he changed his name to "Deka" and became the longest-lived animal in Japan. . During the half century that Deca lived, the global environment changed dramatically, and many wild animals became extinct. As a result, the role and nature of zoos have changed, and the way we think about and interact with animals has also changed significantly. Let's take a look at this through the life of the long-lived and popular Deka.
