Hippo in a wok

This sneaky Ikea hippo has hitched his way down from the Child Distraction Section into the Cookery! Now he's just waiting for someone to pick up a wok...
This post's theme word is paratenic, an adjective that describes an intermediate host which is not needed for the development of the parasite, but nonetheless serves to maintain the life cycle of the parasite. That poor paratenic hippo!
