The tittle of this piece was unknowingly decided by my "Community Management Personnel" (HR) at my studio, when she posted it on instagram with that in the comments. And I loved it.

I love River Potatoes, and all of their angry crocodile hating ways. It seems so vindictive and probably has some "at the dawn of time" epic story reason for it.

Go River Potatoes. You adorable ear wiggling pootzes.

Doodled out for our weekly "Design Challenge" at work.

Wow, I've heard of small potatoes, but small river potatoes - takes on a whole new meaning! That poor crocodile though. He needs a hug... assuming he'd want one and wouldn't bite someone for giving him tender loving care, of course!

I think that Croc needs a bicycle pump to re-inflate him! XD

The fear of hippos!
Hippopatomonstrous-whatever-phobia

Actually, that's the fear of long words, and it's Hippopotomonstrosesquipedaliophobia. Fear of hippos doesn't really have a word, and hippo-phobia is fear of horses.

No I knew that
It was just a joke

Legit phobia. RL footage of them chasing river boats, and the crocs in the water is serious stuff! XD
