💎 Pygmy hippos are so secretive that their very existence was regarded as a myth by western zoologists until the mid-1800s. Fewer than 3,000 are believed to survive today, scattered across the forests of Liberia, Sierra Leone, Côte D'Ivoire and Guinea. Numbers have declined through habitat loss and hunting. An interesting folklore around this species is that tribes would speak of the Pygmy Hippo finding its way around the forest at night by holding diamonds in its mouth that would illuminate the way.
