        1. Wow, must be very scary encounter!

          I had a bad encounter with dogs (domestic dogs) when in Fiji when walking through a small village during day time. 2 fierce dogs came after me and I had to use my back-pack to keep them away, one of them bite my back pack and I had to wrestle the bag away from it and managed to get out of the village unharmed.

          1. Yikes. And the irony, you regularly being exposed to sharks only to find yourself under attack by domestic dogs. Posted 6 years ago
            1. Yes, a bit similar to Steve Irwin.
              He never thought he would die from a sting from a Stingray.
              He probably thought is more likely from an attack from a Crocodile!

The white rhinoceros or square-lipped rhinoceros is the largest extant species of rhinoceros. It has a wide mouth used for grazing and is the most social of all rhino species. The white rhinoceros consists of two subspecies: the southern white rhinoceros, with an estimated 17,460 wild-living animals at the end of 2007, and the much rarer northern white rhinoceros.
