Black Rhino standing

Etosha National Park, Namibia


1 in stock

This black rhino (Diceros bicornis) was limping and barely standing after being attacked by a pack of lions during the night. At midday it was laying on its side on the grass, the only thing in movement was its right ear. Emanuele passed once again during the afternoon and it was not only standing and walking (without limping anymore!), but it was even munching a spiny branch of a small shrub. A true warrior of the dry savannah of Namib desert’s Etosha National Park
