    Another possibility: rhino. When lightened, shows 'water-mark' on lower part of body. Rhino also on this camera Feb 17 - Image ASG001wlym

    That was the other sp I was dithering about. I thought the tail looked a bit thick, though... 😃

    I would say rhinoceros - shape fits better than for a hippopotamus (which has a more rounded rear) 😃

    It is not an everyday sight and it is also a tricky image so don't beat yourself up too much, @parsfan 😃
