  • There are lions and roaring tigers, and enormous camels and things,
    There are biffalo-buffalo-bisons, and a great big bear with wings,
    There's a sort of tiny potamus, and a tiny nosserus too -
    But I gave buns to the elephant when I went down to the Zoo!

    - A. A. Milne,'At The Zoo'.
