We have 2.3 Rhinos. One of our Males has gotten very aggressive recently. I guess he has gone through it before. I used to work with elephants and the way this male Rhino became aggressive toward even his favorite keeper makes me think of Bull elephants in Musth. So I was curious if male rhinos do anything similar to Elephant Musth? I have only been working with rhinos for a few months.

thank you!

Did it only last a week? Male Rhino become aggressive when female Rhino are cycling. Cylic signs in the females are often undetected, but it is often the males aggressive behaviour, sometimes loss of appetite that can give you notification that your females are cycling.
