Black Rhino at Night
At Okaukuejo waterhole in Etosha National Park, Namibia, something special happens when the sun sets. Black Rhino gather around to socialise, drink and bathe. Here an adult and calf meet another rhino. The adult is greeted by the calf but its mother is not too happy and sends the other adult packing. The other adult then decides to go for a swim in rarely seen, let alone filmed, behaviour.
