I like the 2nd picture.. are rhinos really pachyderms? I honestly don't know.

Just what is a pachyderm? Well, "pachy" means "thick," and "derm" means "skin." So these are the thick-skinned animals of Africa. The three most famous pachyderms all live in Africa. They are the elephant, rhinoceros, and the hippopotamus.

Elephants are no longer going to live at the Philadelphia Zoo soon. Not enough room. I called it about 3 years ago, last time I went there. They looked miserable.
