Catlike Creature Riding a Rhino

A camera-trap footage revealed a genet “riding” on the back of a black rhinoceros in South Africa. The mongoose relative was likely searching for food, says Craig Sholley, a wildlife biologist and vice president of the African Wildlife Foundation. That includes insects disturbed by the heavy rhino and parasites on the larger animal.The rhino may also offer a perch from which the genet can scan for prey or avoid predators.
