Big Ben, Sexuki and Fini are still enjoying their African Safari on foot.

Suddenly, there’s a rumbling in the distance.

Fini grabs the hands of Big Ben.

“Help! Help!”, says she, “It’s the end of the world! Aliens have come to eat us!!!”

“No you silly child”, says Big Ben. “It’s a helicopter coming in the distance. It’s somebody coming to kill half the animals so that they don’t overpopulate.”

“Mmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmm”, says Sexuki, “I wonder what animal they’re looking for? There’s a rhino over there for example. Is he one too many?”
