Your Field Guide to Spotting Hapi

Hapi's not difficult to spot. He's got pretty big boobs, and he's often colored green or blue. Why the plump figure, you might ask? He says it's because he's a god of fertility. You might find Hapi leisurely swimming in the Nile or measuring how deep it is. He's got a few wives, but he also loves to take a peek at the lovely ladies swimming in his river.
