Black Rhino Ranger's Description

"This ratel is always stained with paper, tins and paint. The ratel is the filthiest animal on earth. Nothing can make him clean and he never brushes his teeth which suddenly resembled Baraka. By the look of why he was stainless with all the images on him, he is a fan of everything that is on him. Including Mr. Messy".
