This is a colourful counting story about a selfish, bossy warthog who wants the watering hole all to himself. Elephants, leopards, giraffes, zebras and baboons all try to drink at the waterhole and are chased away by the grumpy warthog. They always sneak back for a drink and one day the warthog returns to his waterhole to find that they have drunk all the water and only thick brown mud is left.
