Wild Cat Caught Riding on Backs of Buffalo and Rhinos in Africa [VIDEO]

These trail cameras captured images and video of genet riding around on the backs of large animals. It’s pretty great. 

This genet, a type of spotted cat, has been captured multiple times hitching a ride by Wildlife ACT.

Check out the pictures the game cameras have caught of this cat taking a ride!

The photos and video were taken in the Hluhluwe-iMfolozi Game Reserve in South Africa. The cat was first photographed on the top of a buffalo before the video of it on an endangered black rhino was taken. It now has the awesome nickname of “Genet Jackson.”

The images are just the latest in a line of images of animals taking “piggy-back” rides to go viral this year. First it was a weasel riding a woodpecker, then a raccoon riding an alligator and finally a crow riding a bald eagle.

This must be the latest trend for animals.

Genet Jackson might have been a bull rider in a previous life based on how well it holds onto the rhino as it desperately tries to buck it off!
