In alternating chapters that reveal a nascent period in their development as two of the twentieth century's most influential writers, Beat Generation icons William S. Burroughs and Jack Kerouac's And the Hippos Were Boiled in Their Tanks is an electrifying true-life mystery, including afterword by James Grauerholtz in Penguin Modern Classics.This is a hardboiled crime novel, and a true story. In 1944, Jack Kerouac and William Burroughs, then still unknown writers, were both arrested following a murder: one of their friends had stabbed another and then come to them for advice - neither had told the police. Later they wrote this fictionalised account of that summer - of a group of friends in wartime New York, moving through each other's apartments, drinking, necking, talking and taking drugs and haphazardly drifting towards a bloody crime. Unpublished for years, And the Hippos were Boiled in their Tanks is a remarkable insight into the lives and literary development of two great writers.If you enjoyed And the Hippos were Boiled in their Tanks, you might like Kerouac's On the Road, also available in Penguin Modern Classics.'The novel that kicked it all off'Independent'An insight into Kerouac before he went on the road and Burroughs before his drug use spiralled out of control, this is a major literary event'GQ

Please note that the content of this book primarily consists of articles available from Wikipedia or other free sources online. According to official statistics, there are only 3,000 pygmy hippos in the wild. As a matter of fact, the Nigerian population of pygmy hippos is considered endangered. The pygmy hippos are often situated in West Africa, precisely in lowland forests. Researchers have shown that this species is mainly confined to Liberia, with small numbers in neighboring countries. Biologists have said that the pygmy hippos are comfortable both on land and in water, but rest and forage near waterways. For instance, in Africa, pygmy hippos are mostly located in the shady sites - near swamps, riverbanks or muddy areas. Conservationists have underlined that the birth of every pygmy hippos is crucial. According to various findings, pygmy hippos have dwindled in number due to the loss of their habitat - the African forests being their natural habitat has been torn down at an alarming rate. Other research have demonstrated that the bush hunters, who value and feed on the high quality meat of these mammals are potential dangers that can lead to the rapid extinction of the pygmy hippos...

High Quality Content by WIKIPEDIA articles! Xanthippe was the wife of Socrates and mother of their three sons Lamprocles, Sophroniscus, and Menexenus. There are far more stories about her than there are facts. She was likely much younger than the philosopher, perhaps by as much as forty years. Xanthippe means "blonde horse", from the Greek "xanthos" (blonde) and "hippos" (horse). Hers is one of many Greek personal names with a horse theme (cf. Philippos: "horse lover", Hippocrates: "horse tamer" etc). The "hippos" in an ancient Greek name often suggested aristocratic heritage.

High Quality Content by WIKIPEDIA articles! The hippopotamus (Hippopotamus amphibius ) or hippo , is a large, mostly plant-eating mammal in sub Saharan Africa, and one of only two extant species in the family Hippopotamidae (the other is the Pygmy Hippopotamus). The hippopotamus is the heaviest extant artiodactyl, despite being considerably shorter than the giraffe. The hippopotamus is semi-aquatic, inhabiting rivers and lakes where territorial bulls preside over a stretch of river and groups of 5 to 30 females and young. During the day they remain cool by staying in the water or mud, reproduction and childbirth both occur in water. They emerge at dusk to graze on grass. While hippopotamuses rest near each other in the water, grazing is a solitary activity and hippos are not territorial on land. Despite their physical resemblance to pigs and other terrestrial even-toed ungulates, their closest living relatives are cetaceans (whales, porpoises, etc.) from which they diverged about 55 million years ago. The common ancestor of whales and hippos split from other even-toed ungulates around 60 million years ago.

Cetartiodactyla

Cetartiodactyla is the clade to which whales (including dolphins) and even-toed ungulates have currently been placed. The term was coined by merging the name for the two orders, Cetacea and Artiodactyla, into a single word. The term Cetartiodactyla reflects the idea that whales evolved from within the artiodactyls. Under this definition their closest living land relative is thought to be the hippopotamus. The clade formed by uniting whales and hippos is called Whippomorpha or Cetancodonta. Alternatively, the term Cetartiodactyla is used to denote a clade where Cetacea and Artiodactyla are sister groups, but where Cetacea did not actually evolve from within the Artiodactyla. Under this definition, all artiodactyls, including hippos, are more closely related to one another than any are to the whales. This group has been proposed as a new order, but there is not sufficient evidence of the exact relationship between the two current orders to efficiently merge them.
