Boone, Football-Loving Rhino, Didn't Like the Taste of the Baltimore Ravens

Categories: 49ers, Animals, Food

As promised, we're delivering some compelling images of Boone, the football-loving rhino, breaking his fast with a bowl of the Baltimore Ravens this morning.

The staff over at the San Francisco Zoo mashed together this delicious vegetarian concoction of eggplant, yellow squash, and cabbage to represent the Baltimore Ravens.

After crafting this well-balanced meal, Boone, who was named after the 49ers' Alex Boone, was released to his enclosed dining hall to attack his chow.

According to the Zoo, Boone did not care much for his Ravens mash, but he did like his sweet potato and carrot dish, which spelled out "Go Niners."

"That's a sign that the Niners will win, right?" says Abbie Tuller, spokeswoman for the zoo.

In any event, we hope the Niners took some good notes.
