Hippos and Rhinos


        Considering their size it should be easy to spot hippopotami and rhinosceri, but the rarity of rhinos and the proclivity of hippos to submerge in ponds, we never seen a whole hippo and we thought we would never see a rhino.

        The hippos cooled their heels and their butts. The first rhinos stayed far, far away. Each time we saw them, they were closer than the last until finally a pair rumbled by our van and took off at a fast jog.
