Original text on this topic:
Amori impossibili ? Certainly, there is the rub ... This popular article speaks about a love-story between a female of rhinoceros and a male of elephant at Mutare (Zimbabwe) in captivity.
Another analogous love-story between rhinoceros/elephant happened in the Pilanesberg Park (South Africa) in 2000.
According to the zoologist Marion Garai, these aggressive behaviours are probably due to the compulsory isolation in which animals are obliged.
