Lotus fore… (by George Eastman House)

This is Lotus, only circus-trained hippo in the U.S., who waddles around the ring towing a pony cart. For all her grim expression, she is a likable beast, kind and tractable.

She is 25 years old, weighs 4,800 lb. and posed willingly for Photographer Bob Wallace at the winter quarters of the Al G. Barnes Circus in California.
