“On a late afternoon game drive in the Kruger National Park, we stopped to watch a lone male white rhino drinking water at a pan,” the filmer said.
“Suddenly, out of nowhere, a large male elephant appeared at the pan.” “This bull elephant seemed incredibly irate to find another large animal at the water,” the filmer continued.
“The elephant bull aggressively confronted the rhino, and the rhino initially stood his ground.” “The angry elephant then decided to get physical and pushed the rhino onto its side,” the filmer said.
“The rhino started squealing and screaming while the angry elephant relentlessly pushed and shoved the fallen rhino with its tusks.”
“The extreme endangered classification of the rhinoceros prompted the guide to distract the elephant bull by moving the vehicle and shouting and whistling at the elephant,” the filmer explained.
“This seemed to have the desired outcome and shortly afterwards the rhino can be seen beating a hasty retreat.”
This man was joking around with a few friends by sticking his arm in the water and acting as if he was being bitten, until he was actually bitten by small shark! Then suddenly it wasn't so funny!
Following a nearly decade-long hunt, a massive saltwater crocodile has been captured in northern Australia, according to wildlife authorities.
Rangers caught the crocodile Monday after setting a trap on a private property near Katherine, a town in Northern Territory, Australia.
The evasive crocodile is said to be one of the largest trapped in the region, which is not far from the Nitmiluk and Kakadu national parks.
It was estimated to be about 60 years old, but it is the reptile’s size that is shocking — measuring more than 15 feet long (the average length of a car) and weighing more than 1,300 pounds (which is more than a grand piano)

Horrified environmentalists have voiced their fury after sickening pictures emerged appearing to show a rare protected whale slaughtered "by accident" by hunters.
Experts believe the huge mammal, seen dead at an Icelandic whaling station, is either a critically endangered blue whale or an extremely rare blue whale hybrid.
It was killed by workers during a hunt branded "barbaric" by activists , and in defiance of an worldwide whaling ban.
The boss of the whaling company said the animal was killed after being mistaken for a fin whale, and defiantly hit back at animal rights groups - telling Mirror Online his critics are "against everything".
The latest killing comes just days after the first casualty of the "barbaric" annual hunt was pictured by observers, who now say 22 whales have been killed since it started on June 22.
Earlier this year Iceland's government controversially granted whaling company Hvalur permission to kill up to 238 fin whales this summer.
This is in spite of an international ban on commercial whaling.
Some people say cats aren't as helpful as dogs. That is unless you need ol' Frisky to rock your baby to sleep.
This is the moment a group of cats in a cafe react to an earthquake in Northern Osaka, Japan, on June 18.
The footage begins a few seconds before the quake showing a typical day at the cafe before opening hours, with cats curled up in their favourite spots.
But a few seconds later the kitties appear to sense impending doom and raise their heads.
Although no tremor had yet struck some of the cats appear to anticipate the earthquake and run for cover.
Some of the cats decided to go for high spots, others tried to hide and one cat is shown running around the centre of the room.
The tremor was enough to knock over items in individual homes, and also caused damage to several buildings followed by extensive delays on the roads and in public transport. It was the strongest tremor to hit the Osaka region in decades.
Online commentators noted that not all the cats seemed to have fine-tuned their early warning system and certainly seemed to sense something was about to happen. The footage ignited a debate about whether cats are able to sense earthquakes.
None of the cats were injured in the incident and the cafe praised their ''cleverness'' while reminding people that all of the cats are available for adoption.

An Australian woman is feeling lucky to be alive after she was reportedly pulled into the water by a shark. According to PerthNow, Melissa Brunning was on a friend's yacht off the coast of Australia's rugged Kimberley region in late May when her group got the opportunity to feed some Tawny nurse sharks. Eager to experience the animals, which can grow up to 10 feet long, Brunning said she joined the others at the back of the boat. While everyone else was leaving fish in the water for the sharks to suck up into powerful, tooth-lined jaws, Brunning said she made the mistake of trying to feed one of the creatures by hand. Using the suction it would typically reserve for forcing prey out of holes on the sea floor, the shark sucked up Brunning's finger.
