This site also reveals U-Hauls featuring the hippo-rhino _Teleoceras_
(rather unimaginatively pictured as a white rhino with a short horn) and
the Mazon Creek problematicum _Tullimonstrum_!!! (as well as less apropos
stuff like Champ and the "humongous fungus".) I have to give some credit
to U-Haul, they've come a long way since just showing a Burian rip-off
Tarbosaurus on the side of their "Montana" trucks.
