I've tried to focus on designing a model that is not overly complex, but features the main characteristics of the hippo - the short legs, the bulky body, the small ears and eyes, and the massive bulbous yawn. I'm not 100% happy with the use of the paper for the read legs, but it seems to work, and fortuitously balances out the front-heavy head of the model.

Designer : Designed and folded by myself, Copyright 2010
Paper : One uncut square
Crease pattern : None available

Please note : Unless I have indicated above, diagrams and crease patterns do not exist for this model. Please do not email me requesting them.
