What to Do if You're Challenged by a Rhino: VIDEO


In a new show from Discovery, wildlife filmmaker Kim Wolhuter is challenged by a black rhino after getting out of his vehicle to get a better shot of the critically endangered animal.

The show, which is called Man, Cheetah, Wild might be more aptly titled Balls of Steel.

  1. OMG what tools. Really, is there anything more insufferable than "normal" guys awed by how destructive nature can be? Read a freaking book.

  2. FENROX, you must live a dull life...sometimes people just aren't satisfied by reading a boring book.

  3. Why don't nature photographers wear camouflage?

  4. Why don't YOU go read a freaking book and leave the internet to the professionals.

  5. So the other guy with the big gold cross around his neck decides to just film the poor idiot "being taken out".

  6. Love this stuff. I flipped a rhino on his side once, kicked him in the stomach and told him to go home. Hurt my foot.

  7. Stop the autoplay video ads. Obnoxious!

  8. @JACKFKNTWIST: Clearly you didn't listen or watch the video. They said rhinos charge at anything that moves in these situations. If his friend ran over or rode over to help, it would've made it worst.

    ...So calm down...jeesh...

  9. Thanks to the Chinese, very soon we won't need to worry about rhinos charging anyone.

  10. I've been challenged by a charging racoon in my backyard(and at the last moment we both ran away at the same time). And then it came back and we did the same thing all over again.
    So far no charging rhinos.......

  13. If you think a Rhino is dangerous, look out for a RINO - Republicans In Name Only.

    Right..because white, Europeans and Americans never hunted anything to extinction. You know that...or encroaching populations and habitat destruction didn't get them to the endangered list first.

  15. Stand your ground! LOL.....

  16. The driver did not notice Kim had left? WTF! Time for a new driver.

  17. Frozen North, seriously? What hole are you living in?
    You're correct, white populations have hunted species to extinction, how does that justify the continued slaughter of any species. And, clearly, you've never been to Africa... or looked at a map. It's BIG. REALLY BIG. The rhino has loads of room to survive without fear of being encroached upon, so that theory is pooched as well.
    This has nothing to do with racial prejudice. Any bit of research will show you that TCM is driving a huge demand for rhino horn in China and Vietnam. The surge in rhino poaching has been especially rapid in the last couple years. Until we stop putting our heads in the sand for fear of offending the offenders, these incredible animals will cease to exist, just like their western counterparts.

  22. what a beautiful creature in my lifetime i will see them killed off.

  23. @FROZEN NORTH Just so you know, Chinese men believe that ground rhino horns impart extreme virility and makes their dicks grow bigger and harder. They are the biggest black market for rhino horns, particularly black rhino horns, in the world.

  24. Rhinos, particularly black ones, are usually real sweetiepies. I've known a few. This fellow was obviously a bit upset at being described so unkindly and inappropriately as "critically endangered".
