Black Rhino
Like many other animals, black rhinos can be inquisitive. If one stays quite still beside a tree, or on top of an ant-hill, they will sometimes come to within a few yards before realizing what they are approaching. In some circumstances, they will respond to a whistle, and trot up to see what h...

Rhinos are usually credited with only very low intelligence, most articles on the subject using the word 'stupid'. There are again probably differences between the species. Persons who have spoored rhinos in Southeast Asia have testified that these animals are extremely clever and wily and ofte...

I call to mind a rather peculiar instance concerning rhino, which happened whilst maneuvering to get a shot at a bull elephant who was amongst a herd of others. A very inquisitive rhino would come close up and stare at us, and as I could not get out of the beast's way, and not wanting to shoot h...
