Rhynos:- Rhyhorn, Rhydon, Rhyperior, Nidoran, Nidorino, Nidoking, Nidoqueen

Hippos- Hippodawn, Hippotas

Elephants- Donphan, Phanphy

Crocodiles- Sandile, Krokorok, Krookodile,

Bizarre fact I randomly thought about

I'm not sure the Nidos are based on rhinos... The first stages look more like rabbits than anything, and from there they just become more randomly monstrous (not that it's a bad thing; Nidoking is one of my favorite Gen 1s). But I do see what you're getting at.

Its just a coincidence.

Litleo, Bouffalant, Girafarig, and the Zebstrika line aren't ground types.

Edit: Mightyena as well.

Sandile is based on caimans, a South American crocodile.

Also Elephants, and Crocodiles aren't only found in Africa.
