  • Rhinos are like a fusion between an elephant and a triceratops... And excluding them and buffalos, HIPPOS are a whole new level of savage... Many a hunter taking on the Big 5 with Nitro Express rifles have lost their lives in the process... Now imagine prehistoric man trying to hunt on the wide open savanna, whose only weapons are a lance with a flint head, a knife made from the jawbone of a hyena, a stone axe, and MAYBE an atlatl and three-four flint headed javelins...

    Well, now I know why everybody always talks about how badass cape buffalo are. That was impressive, despite that the rhino clearly could have kicked its ass.

    I wouldn't take on that Rino in an Abrams, I doubt that buffalo would stand a chance in a knock down, drag out, fight to the death.

    I was watching the bigger buff behind the rhino. He was getting worked up. Cape buffalo have the 'You fight one you fight the whole herd' mentality and that rhino was aware of it.

    We had a small heifer bull like that once. He took no shit. Got his ass kicked by other bulls consistently, but he never quit. I saw a bull that outweighed him by 500 lbs beat the living shit out of him in a pen. At the end of two months in the bull pasture he was the top dog. He just never gave up. Truly a life lesson about fortitude.

    He went on to remove the finger of a family member who turned his back on him while he closed the gate, but that’s the result of thinking you own something that disagrees. Everything understands force and violence that never stops, and they respect it.
