Cyprus in the Mesolithic: A man hunts a Cyprus dwarf hippopotamus (Hippopotamus minor). This was a relative to the modern hippo (Hippopotamus amphibius) and characterized by a special foot-anatomy which made it walking on just two toes per foot and was an adaption to a more terresric way of life. This specialized hippo became extinct very fast after the arrival of humans on prehistoric Cyprus.
