Now they have multiplied and there is a whole herd of new, uniquely South American hippos running free! Be amazed as we join filmmakers Monica Pinzon and Jefferson Beck on their journey to Colombia to find out how these animals got to where they are and what will happen to them now that they are thriving there.
