    • This is a photo of a bilingual animal warning traffic sign at Transvaal, at the approach to Kruger National Park. The sign features two distinct parts:
      • The upper part is the outline of a white hippopotamus on a blue triangular field with a red border.
      • The lower part is white text in two lines separated by a horizontal bar, all on a dark green field. The top line reads "PASOP VIR SEEKOEIE" in Afrikaans. The bottom line reads "BEWARE OF HIPPOPOTAMUS" in English.
    • This file was originally uploaded as Image:Pasoop Rhino.jpg, which was incorrect for two reasons as follows (and so was deleted as a duplicate per Commons:Village pump/Archive/2007Jun#must_the_hippo_remain_a_rhino_by_name.3F):
      • "Pasoop" was misspelled.
      • "Rhino" misidentified the animal outlined.
