Where can you find the Thames Hippo?

There are two possible answers to this question.

Firstly the Totally Thames Hippo can no longer be spotted on the Thames just upriver of Vauxhall Bridge ... but where is the new wallowing hole?

Fortunately finding it is a little easier than a Where's Wally? (or even Waldo) hunt, being after all, 21 metres long and made of light wood that gleams in the sunlight.

In fact you can currently find him / her / it in St. Katharine Docks by the Tower Bridge (above).

Secondly it could mean the fossilised remains of the hippo found under Trafalgar Square, which were recently to be seen on display at the Natural History Museum in London:

I think that exhibition has closed so they have probably gone back to the British Museum.
