Young rhino sparring

We’ve had a few weeks of courting leopards, lions arguing over food and hunting buffalo, so perhaps it’s time to see what the herbivores have been up to. If you have a soft spot for these guys then you’ll probably also enjoy Hippos “jawing off” and Making merry in the mud bath.

Ant Mulligan caught these youngsters honing their sparring skills sometime last year. There’s a lot more running around and posturing than actual sparring, but it’s amusing to watch nonetheless. And because they’re fairly short, you’re getting two clips instead of the usual one.

Happy almost weekend folks, enjoy!
