Nice! That is a long list!!
The Rhino? Shouldn't it do some justice to the name?It sounds as if it is a a big masculine SUV and it turns out to be a Qualis mated with an Omni.[frustration]

Yeti. hmmm.[thinking].
Yes,as much I remember,Yeti is a mythical dragon type animal which lives in water,I mean something which has the mouth of a dragon,body of a snake with fins on it.
Example:If anyone has seen a cartoon called 'pokemon' on cartoon network then there was a pokemon called 'gyarados' in it,it looked like this myth called 'Yeti' :biggrin:
