Answer to Bi-metallic Quiz Game question #606.
A hippopotamus appears on a colorized Tri-metallic coin of Somalia dated, 1998. Though mild looking, and perhaps even comical, the hippo is not a friendly animal. A bite from this plant eating animal can be fatal. What is another name for a hippopotamus?
a. River Pig.
b. River Lion.
c. River Cow.
d. River Horse.
The correct answer for question #606 is d; River Horse.  Some members referred to a source unknown to me and identified the Hippo as a River Pig. Therefore, both answers were accepted.

WBCC Quiz Game Prize
A Bi-metallic prize will be awarded for the correct answer. If more than one member gets the correct answer, a random drawing will be conducted to select a winner. There were 11 players in game #605 and the winner was Andrzej Kasprzycki WBCC member #424.
