Chicot the Hippo

Elvis must have detected a soul mate in Chicot, and by all reports they had a lot in common and got on great. Chicot spent a lot of time hanging with Elvis and the Posse in Graceland. Elvis furnished the famous Jungle Room in honor of Chicot to make him feel at home, and it was here that significantly he was first introduced to Peanut Butter and Jelly Sandwiches, which would cast such a shadow over both of them in later years as they struggled with the dependence and many futile attempts to kick the habit. (It is said that at its peak it was costing Elvis $18.50 a week to supply his addiction).
