Dangerous creatures, plants, etc.. quiz (RV)

Unread postby naturelover » Sun Oct 19, 2008 3:31 pm

Hi all

This quiz may be on anything for animals to trees that is or can be dangerous to man.

Normal RV rules apply.

Here goes:

Out of the 2 rhino species which is the most dangerous and why?

Good luck :thumbs_up:

White!

Simply because people, especially guides, tend to get so blazé, because "it is not a black rhino". More people are injured by white rhino, than by black. (Yes, the fact that there are a lot less black also play a role.)

Yes and no

True more people are injured by white rhino however the black is the more aggressive of the two and will charge much more easily than the white.

I think that I will accept your answer.

Over too you Imberbe
