Have not been here in ages.

Thought this may be of interest to you guys.
Have seen videos of kills before but never with a Rhino killing another animal.

That is quite incredible. :thumbs_up:

Just wondered why the buff didn't try to get away sooner? :hmz:

THanks for sharing. :dance:

Quite amazing video! :shock:
Not sure why the Buff didn't run off sooner, unless it was ill.
Certainly one very aggressive Rhino, not sure I would have liked to be in its path after that.

In some of the smaller reserves it is often seen that Rhino will clash with other species. at a certain Big5 reserve I worked we had various incidents between Rhino and other specie, including Buff. :thumbs_up:

But I doubt if the Buff was dead after this altercation, looks hurt though. :|

He does look hurt but I think the whole ordeal only made him more grumpy. I think the rhino will be ok to run into after this. But that buffalo will be mad..... :twisted:
