With World Rhino day approaching, (Sept 22nd) how about we upload a few more rhino pictures to this thread? Who´ll be the first to submit images of "Safaritalk" at Ol Pejeta?

Rhino photos I can do. I took hundreds in January.
The black rhino cow has two calves, her most recent and one from previous years. Her story is coming up in my stalled trip report. ;)

yeah, realised that I'd made the pic small for our website ... didn't realise how small LOL. I'll find the original out and put that on instead. But you get the gist for what it could look like if it was the right size  ;)

Sabi Sands, May 2013.

 

The above rhino has had it's horn treated under the new "toxification" campaign implemented by the Sabi Sand Wildtuin Association. They have injected a mix of parasiticides and indelible pink dye into numerous rhinos' horns in order to combat international poaching syndicates. The horns are infused by a non-lethal chemical mixture designed to sicken anyone using it as a “traditional medicine”. Consumers of the powdered horn risk becoming seriously ill from ingesting a so-called "medicinal product" which is now contaminated with a non-lethal chemical package. A key additive to the Sabi Sand treatments is an indelible pink dye which exposes the presence of smuggled horns on airport scanners worldwide and warns consumers that the ground-up product is hazardous. The toxin-dye injections are administered into the horn's inert (painless) keratin by compressed air. 

 

Since all the products used are biodegradable and eco-friendly, there are no long-term effects on the environment and only Ox-Pecker friendly and Vulture safe products have been used. The treatment “grows” out with the horn and so poses no long-term effects and, if a treated animal dies of natural causes, retrieval and registration of the horn is a legal requirement. In addition, by law, any rhino that is immobilised for whatever reason now has to be micro-chipped.

 

The fact that the rhino’s in the reserve are treated is widely publicised by means of 200+ signposts around the reserve’s perimeter and, should a treated rhino be killed, the indelible dye is clearly visible inside the horn. Staff from the various lodges are also actively involved in the horn treatment process as their involvement ensures that word about the treatment spreads rapidly via the “bush telegraph”.

The first two are from the Dolomite area in Etosha, March 2013.  Mom and Baby visited the watering hole.  They got to within 12 yards of the vehicle before our guide started it up and she ran off.  I have a great video where you can here us talking and her breathing.

Okay Warden, here are some...

I don't disclose locations of rhino photos, but bright sparks here on ST can easily identify some of these regions (perhaps)...
