When A Rhino Enters An Elephant’s Hood

This comes to us via YouTube. “Captured by 34-year-old Joe Gregory, while on a safari vacation. Joe gives his account to LatestSightings.com: “The reserve is situated in a very remote destination and can only be accessed by a boat, making it quite an exclusive site. Once there, we were welcomed with lunch on the water’s edge & shortly after that we embarked on our afternoon game drive. We were driving around the marshy wetlands on the island where we encountered a herd of elephant and a crash of rhinos – it was here where the standoff began. It was an absolutely amazing sensation to see & be a part of the standoff where a young elephant bull in musth showed this male white rhino who was boss. We could all physically feel the testosterone aura which surrounded the battlefield of these 2 ancient rivals.
The sighting ended in a stalemate with no winner. I would, however, say, the balancing act of the branch and the elephant “throwing” the branch at the rhino was a somewhat cheeky ending to the tussle. I believe they both showed their belonging in the area with mutual respect, making both of them ultimate winners. I think this standoff was an extremely rare sighting – it is not every day that we can personally engage with 2 of the big 5 at this level, hence sharing it with Latest Sightings. If you’re ever so lucky to have this experience, then cherish every moment as it truly doesn’t happen every day – feel the energy and engage personally with our wonderful South African nature”.
