Original text on this topic:
Coming back from the top of Mulu, I found a Rhino had crossed our upward track it had made a prodigious leap and disappeared down a very awkward gully. The general opinion was it would not stop running all day. Rhinos may look clumsy and awkward but they are very strong and agile. The steepest hills are nothing to them, up or down, rocks are no obstacles and they are quite tireless, running away for days without stopping when alarmed.
