A couple of pictures of Rhinos we have seen in Kruger National Park during or July 2013 Trip.

We sincerely hope that they are still alive and safe and that other people will be able to see them too when they visit the park O:V

This is a very rare pic by Pumbaa recently - the flehmen response! :shock: ^Q^

From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

The flehmen response (/ˈfleɪmən/; German: [ˈfleːmən]), also called the flehmen position, flehmen reaction, flehming, or flehmening, is a behavior in which an animal curls back its upper lip exposing its front teeth, inhales with the nostrils usually closed, and then often holds this position for several seconds. It may be performed over a site or substance of particular interest to the animal or may be performed with the neck stretched and the head held high in the air.

Flehmen is performed by a wide range of mammals including ungulates and felids. The behavior facilitates the transfer of pheromones and other scents into the vomeronasal organ (VNO, or Jacobson's organ) located above the roof of the mouth via a duct which exits just behind the front teeth of the animal.

I post this story because of World Rhino Day.... today september 22 2014

Not a funny story... not a day to celebrate.... but to be afraid for the future of these wonderful animals.

Why ? because the world today is crazy.... stupid..... people are turning into killing machines to kill all elephants and rhino and many other species for some dollars.... payed by "people" from a part of the world thinking a horn of hair will do any good to them.... or , what I think.... they now have money and spend it for buying horn and ivory just for fun....

A world where the word respect is like rhino..... endangered .... No respect for them....no rhino.... they just don't care, including all the people supporting this process.... politcians....rangers....staff.... the reality of 2014

More then 700 rhino lost their life in 2014 ...just because they have some pressed hair on their heads ... the horns they need ....horns they have for many many thousands of years

I feel sad and angry ...every day another 3 are killed. Peacefull animals.... social animals.... animals with a friendly face... not harming anybody.... they belong to the wildlife world.... they belong to africa but also in asia .... just a few left in the far east.... just a few thousand in africa

The world....I mean people do NOT learn from history....

Last trip to kruger you see soldiers ...hunting poachers , I mean I have seen more soldiers in the north of kruger then rhino....

Sorry for this , but it is coming from the heart , I feel and I am angry and knowing I can't do anything to stop it

In this mood I just like to show some pictures of rhino made during our last trip

When I prepared the pictures I was thinking... are you still around....
