Advanced Sleeping Techniques

Once you are comfortable with basic sleeping, you may wish to move on to more difficult positions, as demonstrated here by Dizzy the Frenchie.  Caution: Dizzy is a professional; do not attempt these maneuvers without training and supervision.

Built Rhino Tough!

Welcome to the RPG (Rhino Proving Grounds) here at Busch Gardens.  Each morning, new recruits report to their MOM (Maneuverable Obstacle Mentor) for a run on the training track, evading GNU (Ground Nuisance Units) before settling down for a well-earned NAP (Nighttime Asleep Procedure).  Sure it’s tough, but it’s how we make sure your next Rhino is rugged, maneuverable, and built to last.

In Soviet Russia, kittehs snorgle YOU

Sender-Inner Kimberly writes; “My cat, Gus, sets out to prove his theory that humans also have an axis of snorgling. Unfortunately for me he enjoys proving his point when I’m attempting to sleep and I’m at my most vulnerable.”
