A video that has been viewed millions of times on Dailymotion captures the hilarious moment when a giant rhino wakes up a tiny dog that was sleeping on the grass. The footage, which was recorded by a wildlife photographer in South Africa, shows the curious rhino slowly approaching the unsuspecting dog, then gently nudging it with its horn.
The video has been viewed over 10 million times, and has received thousands of comments from amused viewers. Some of them praised the rhino for being gentle and friendly, while others sympathized with the dog and wondered how it ended up in such a situation.
One comment read: “That rhino is so sweet, he just wanted to make a new friend. The dog was like ‘nope, I’m outta here’.” Another comment said: “Poor dog, he must have had a heart attack. How did he even get there? Did he escape from a zoo or something?”. The way the dog barked conveyed how scared it was when it woke up to a giant Rhinoceros staring in its face.
The video was reportedly filmed in South Africa, where rhinos are native and endangered animals. According to World Wildlife Fund, there are only about 20,000 white rhinos and 5,000 black rhinos left in the wild, due to poaching and habitat loss. The organization urges people to support their efforts to protect these majestic creatures and their habitats.
The video is one of the many examples of how animals can surprise us with their behavior and interactions. It also shows how social media platforms like Dailymotion can help spread awareness and appreciation for wildlife and nature. Only in a crazy year like 2023 would people get to witness a unique moment in nature like this.
