Rocky Mountain Rhino

Living in Evergreen, Colorado gives one a sense of alpine wonder. Last week I stopped counting when I got to 120 elk walking through our back yard open space: we have foxes, coyotes, mountain lions, bobcats, bears, deer, and at least one rhinoceros.

I’m sad sometimes when I think that we’ve encroached on the habitat of the Colorado Rhino.

    Is this where you live? Where did the rhino come from? I always knew there were rhinos in Colorado!

    (The AWMOK Jungle Animal Petting Zoo is a scenic attraction whose cages are currently being filled to coincide with the release of the upcoming Pomplamoose with Allee Willis “Jungle Animal” VideoSong and online music game and contest. Jungle tamer, AWMOK creator, curator and charming hostess, Allee Willis, me, will be steadily leading jungle animals to their cages over the next 1-2 months or so as you bring them here until the song is released. If ever there ever was a category that was primed to be kitschified it’s that of “Jungle Animal” as all the stripes, spots and fur have been inspiration for designers since the beginning of time. I thank you all in advance for placing your jungle pets in such an illustrious cage as The Allee Willis Museum of Kitsch. Keep them coming!)

    Yes Evergreen is where we own a house. 25 miles from downtown Denver, and about 2500 feet higher in altitude.

    The city has sculptures on this path for almost 5 miles, and this one scares the hell out of Maggie, our Goldendoodle. Maggie will walk among the elk trudging through our back yard like they’re her pals, but the first time she saw this she almost took my arm out of the shoulder socket!
