The correct title is unknown.

The Huge Hippopotamus was a creature mentioned in a radio news broadcast heard by you. It is said that a man was apparently trampled to death by 'an unusually huge hippopotamus'. Presumably, it was a creature incursion caused by an anomaly and the news story was a cover-up by the ARC. (Primeval Evolved Intro) Despite being called a huge hippopotamus, the creature could have been anything large enough to crush a human, and not necessarily a hippo.

It could have been anything from a Scutosaurus to a Embolotherium, but it was most likely a Toxodon or a Hippopotamus gorgops (a giant 6ft tall, 14ft long hippo).


  • It is possible for the Hippopotamus to be an Embolotherium, a Scutosaurus, or, most likely, something which the team has never encoutered on screen, like a Hippopotamus gorgops. The latter suggestion (Hippopotamus gorgops) appears to be the most likely identification, for this creature, since the description "Huge Hippopotamus" is the most similar, to this creature.
  • This creature may have been a Toxodon from Tim Haines's Prehistoric Park.
  • This creature could also probably be a Moeritherium.
  • This creature may also be any type of medium sized dinosaur, such as Anatotitan or Ankylosaurus.
  • The creature could even be a Deinotherium.
  • It may have been a Gorgonopsid(unlikely)or even an Iguanodon.
