Nature Is Amazing! And Terrifying!
This Black Rhino was just enjoying a swim. When he went to get out, things got a bit hectic. The mud on the bank of the watering hole was quite soft and gave way under the weight of such a heavy animal. The Rhino was struggling to get out, slipping and sinking deeper the more it tried. Not long after, three young male lions approached the Rhino from the back and began to circle it. With nowhere to go the Rhino begins to panic, but still cannot escape the quicksand like mud of the waters bank. The Lions start to claw and scratch at it before fully attacking, seeming to test if it’s truly stuck and in distress. The Rhino decides to retreat back into the water and swim down to a different bank; finally getting itself up and out of the watering hole. It doesn’t end there though! The lions still seem interested and continue striking and circling the Rhino as it fends them off with it’s horn and superior strength. Incredibly the lions still strike a few more times before realizing they won’t be able to take this beast down.
It seems these were three immature male lions who don’t yet know better than to attack a Black Rhino…They’ll soon learn their way. The effort it would take for those lions to take down that Rhino would most likely result in the death and injury of the lions and the mortal wounding of the Rhino. That’s if all went well for them, most likely…Rhino wins.
