The Invaders: Cocaine Hippos
The infamous drug lord Pablo Escobar was notorious for smuggling cocaine, but perhaps less known for illegally importing exotic species to his personal zoo.

Join Nat Geo WILD for an exclusive look at the so-called "cocaine hippos" and the battle to control this thriving African invader.
