This week on Knowing Animals I am joined by John Simons. John is an Emeritus Professor in history, specialising in the history of animals. John is now retired, but most recently was Deputy Vice-Chancellor (Academic) at Macquarie University in Sydney. We discuss John’s new book ‘Obaysch: A Hippopotamus in Victorian London’ which has just been published by Sydney University Press.
