      Thanks Linda! Yes indeed, if you give the rhino (and any animal for that matter) the necessary space, you”ll be perfectly safe and the animals will mostly go about their business as if you aren’t even there.

      Thanks for the great question Joanne! These seem to be notches made by the rangers, they’re very clean cut and are used to identify individual rhinos. More jagged knicks might be from thorns and so on. Occasionally you’d come across a rhino with one or both ears totally removed; we’ve always thought this might have been due to unsuccessful predator attacks when they were calves.

        Thanks! It’s a good reminder that the scarred and nicked animals are the survivors.

        My first reaction was to feel sorry for them, but on the other hand, they are in fact the lucky ones … they’re still alive 🙂

        It’s a different way to look at our scars too!

      Sover ek weet, Tina, het elke provinsie se “fauna en flora” afdeling hul eie reels en regulasies oor watter wildsoorte mens daar mag aanhou, wat die minimum vereistes vir elke spesie is, wat jy met oortollige diere mag doen, hoe hulle vervoer mag word, hoe lank hulle in kwarantyn moet staan, ens.
