A BBC Wildlife Video…
Please DO NOT try this unattended! 😉
Can you feel the tension as this group of tourists approach the rhinos on their African safari walk? I surely could! 🙂
To be honest with you I have never (ever) seen anything like this: truly unbelievable encounter! What do yo think?
Also loved to see people’s reactions as they reluctantly got closer to the animals! Even if I tried I wouldn’t be able to make such grins lol! 🙂
Rhinos can be very unpredictable creatures, and can display considerable aggression when alarmed! Although their eyesight is rather poor, they possess exceptional hearing and a good sense of smell!
Luckily for them, the safari outcome was rather smooth! 🙂 😉
Notice that white rhinos are generally more curious and less aggressive than their black cousins…this might explain the incredibly close sighting! Or should I rather say, as the guide rightfully puts it, that this particular rhinoceros is just a “nice” character! 🙂
