WATCH: Elephant and rhino have an intense standoff

Posted on 30 June 2023

An African elephant and a white rhino were captured by videographer, Matti Karvanen, in what was a clash of giants

White rhinos tend to weigh more than two tons, with very few animals able to match this heavyweight, except for an elephant of course. We don’t know what caused the tension between the two animals, but the rhino can be seen slowly baking away before being pinned down by the elephant.

The rhino later scurried away, having clearly met its match. Watch the epic scenes below
