They are such strange-looking beasts...sometimes evolution goes off in unusual directions. Don't think you want to get too close to these, either, right?

Ooh, now these are serious camera critters. Good shot! I'm so glad people are "shooting" with cameras instead of guns these days.

Great shot Jose. The rhino are so large they do seem scary at times but these white rhino can becaome very tame on private reserves.

Not the prettiest of animals, is it? So prehistoric almost. Great capture.
