Rinoceronti bianchi - White Rhinos

Ceratotherium simum

Che dire...
Eravamo seduti in campeggio il primo giorno.
Loro erano cinque,e alla fine ci possati a cinque
metri senza degnarci di uno sguardo.
La situazione non è stata del tutto simpatica...
---What to say...
We were sitting in the camping on the first day.
They were five and they walked at five meters from us
without looking us.
The situation wasn't so confortable...

Close maybe, but great photos. They do not see very well so maybe the wind was blowing the right way so there was no sense of smell!! Diane

Dont worry, they become very tame in some places where there are a lot of people, unlike the Black Rhino which are always fiesty and ready to charge. :)

Did you know that you can tell from miles away if they are Black or White Rhino? The White walks with its head low like this because they eat grass and the Black walks with its head up as it eats leaves.

Also, if they have babies with them, the White Rhino lets the calf walk ahead while the Black Rhino calf follows behind.

Really wonderful shots Andrea.
