The answer

You'll need:
5,000-litre tank
4,000 litres of water
Crane
1-pound sedative
Soothing music
2 Aspirin (for you)

How to pack:

1. Fill your tank with 4,000 litres of water. Start yesterday.
2. Apply sedative. Take two Aspirin.
3. Hold it, hold it – carefully put in the tank; first start with the soothing music, followed by lifting with a large crane.
4. Now go relax in a hot bath before the forklift arrives.


What is the riddle?

Just out of curiosity, Jose, why do you want to relocate a hippo, anyway?

WAIVER: I, Johan van Rensburg, in no way advocate moving a hippo or any animal without the express advice and consent of your local vet or zoo keeper.
