I know what’s more intimidating than a charging rhino:

Two charging rhinos.

u/Hojie_Kadenth Nov 30 '22

shudders Surely nothing is more intimidating than that!

u/spainenins Nov 30 '22

Yeah, there is... three charging rhinos.

u/N_the_character Nov 30 '22

Ever seen four charging rhinos? Joe never recovered from the trauma.

u/[deleted] Nov 30 '22

Well why do I hear running sound everywhe- OH, OKAY, FATE looks at 10 rhinos charging at you from every direction

u/Academic-Truth7212 Nov 30 '22

This a White Rhino, they rarely charge. They as tame as a cow. I have feed some by hand. The difference between a Black rhino and a white, is the agresivity and the top lip. White rhino has a square lip and is not agressive, a black rhino is much more agressive and has a pointy top lip. You want to stay away from those.

He float like a butterfly, sting like a Rhino.

Quick! Take away his credit card!

I hope that a serious zoom lens. I'd be scared shitless if that thing was coming for me.

u/AnotherDreamer1024 Nov 30 '22

Last picture in a camera?

u/osdmig777 Nov 30 '22

Rhino feetsys not touching the ground so it is really flying.

u/heidjuk Nov 30 '22

That's some slick photography

u/joshuaaa_l Nov 30 '22

Charging Hippo is scarier imo

9

u/ImNoSkrull Nov 30 '22

Yes. And hippos are also the dangerous species in Africa. Atleast rhinos have poor eyesight and if your lucky enough to find a tree. Hide behind it and the Rhino will probably lose sight of you.

u/deanrihpee Nov 30 '22

Glad there are no eye doctor for rhinos, imagine what would happen if they exists

1

u/wholesome_futa_hug Nov 30 '22

An evil ophthalmologist somewhere is making the final touches on his rhino eye exam machine, the first steps in creating rhino corrective lenses. His time will come.

u/tyson_3_ Nov 30 '22

I’d take a charging rhino over a charging hippo. Sidestep that blind bastard and he’ll just run right past you. A hippo running at you underwater on the bed of a river, so you don’t even know where it is… 🔥

1

u/mogreen57 Nov 30 '22

Side step? Like the rhino just won’t turn around?

10

u/tyson_3_ Nov 30 '22 edited Nov 30 '22

First, you sidestep. Then, when the rhino has impaled itself in a tree trunk, you transform into a billygoat and head butt that rhino right over the damn cliff.

Then you just have to hope it doesn’t turn into a purple dragon.

2

u/SmolNoisyFrog Nov 30 '22

Haha, nice reference!

2

u/tyson_3_ Nov 30 '22

Ha. I was hoping at least a couple people would get it.

Absolute classic movie.

1

u/mogreen57 Nov 30 '22

Oohhhh ok. Shoulda just said so

1

u/red_piper222 Nov 30 '22

Brilliant! I haven’t seen that movie for 35 years and could immediately picture the duel

1

u/Kevin_Pentagram Nov 30 '22

It's not that easy, I mean I also heard in the past that if a rhino charges at you in open field, your best chance of survival is to dodge it before it hits you, but you must evade moments before it gets to you or it would simply redirect towards you.
Problem is that rhinos can run up to 50-55 km/h, you've got to be an advanced Dark Souls player to time the roll lol

1

u/mogreen57 Nov 30 '22

I think someone lied to you. I think if the rhino really wants to get you it will simply turn around and stomp you

u/Wild_Rx Nov 30 '22

So, this is what death looks like.

Would you look at that, all of the words in your comment are in alphabetical order.

I have checked 1,198,740,010 comments, and only 233,808 of them were in alphabetical order.

u/nchomsky96 Nov 30 '22

I remember this exact picture from a couple of years ago when I took the rhino and photoshopped it behind me in a picture of me going for a jog on April fools day

u/diprivan69 Nov 30 '22

You haven’t met my wife.

u/Mountain_Jello7747 Nov 30 '22

Almost as intimidating as a grasshopper jumping on your leg when you least expect it

1

u/F-all-yall Nov 30 '22

Nope, charging T-Rex.

u/awesomesauce5678910 Nov 30 '22

.....until u see a lion or elephant charging at you 🫣

u/MaestroM45 Nov 30 '22

Yes, airborne rhinos impress me

u/OberynRedViper8 Nov 30 '22

I had the distinct pleasure of standing between two of these dudes in their pens. They were huffing and puffing at each other and ramming the massive bars with their horns. It felt like I was in Jurrasic Park.

u/Living-Dream Nov 30 '22

Battle horn giganticus

u/Unlikely_Layer_2268 Nov 30 '22

It’s not frightening. You won’t have barely registered what’s coming because they are so fast.

1

u/casual_shoggoth Nov 30 '22

Not for long

u/Doc_ET Nov 30 '22

Counterpoint: a charging hippo.

Legend says that he hovered towards the camera man at least 15 yards.

I loved that dog one sleeping and looks up at one of those talk about a double take that dog was gone

Would you like to play?

Stand completely still they can only see things when they move

u/BriskHeartedParadox Nov 30 '22

I learned from a goat video on here recently that if you get down on your knees and head butt the rhino you can back it down easily

1

u/Pounce_64 Nov 30 '22

Not as intimidating as what you're mum charges!

u/AtomicWreck Nov 30 '22

I’m more scared of a hippopotamus to be honest.

Don't be fooled, it isn't thunder. Staying put would be a blunder.

u/JuiceyPeanutButt Nov 30 '22

Most intimidating thing & probably the last thing you see before waking up at St Peter's gates

1

u/Sideways255 Nov 30 '22

But have you seen a charging hippo? Even rhinos don't want to mess with that.

It's only half as "intemidating" (whatever that means) as two charging Rhinos.

u/whiterussiansp Nov 30 '22

Right up there with spelling and grammar.
