The key lesson in this incredible footage of a white rhinoceros attack on a warthog is that you shouldn’t mess with a rhino when it is eating.
Though white rhinoceros are not usually as aggressive as black rhino, they are still quite capable of inflicting great harm upon creatures who invade its personal space.
This warthog crossed the line and paid the price.
WARNING: This video contains graphic content.
Rhinoceros can be quite skittish and temperamental. These traits, combined with their massive size, incredible strength, and surprising speed, can spell bad news for those who cross it.
A mature white rhinoceros is capable of beating up a cape buffalo with no problem, so this warthog really had no chance.
So remember: if you encounter any type of rhinoceros in the wild, make sure you give it a wide berth or you may regret it.
