Tourists Witness Battle Between Elephant, Rhino

This rhino decided to challenge an elephant in front of a bunch of tourists in Kruger Park.

While a rhino is certainly no wimp and can really deal out some pain in a fight, it's still not a smart move to pick a fight with another animal that's literally over twice your size. Trying to punch that far above your weight class isn't normally a good idea.

Here is what happens when the second largest member of the Big 5 challenges the biggest member. 

Watch the video to see how it all goes down:

"You see this stick? This is what I'm about to do to you if you keep messing around!"

The rhino clearly got the message loud and clear and decided that discretion was the better part of valor.

Who knows what would have happened if that would have been a Cape Buffalo with a bad attitude instead of the rhino though...
