World-first: A genet rides a black rhino

This amazing never-before-seen footage captured by Wildlife ACT reveals a genet riding on a critically endangered black rhino in Hluhluwe-iMfolozi Game Reserve, South Africa.

In 2014, this genet, nicknamed Genet Jackson, was photographed hitch-hiking on a buffalo as well as a white rhino. Now, it has been filmed riding on a critically endangered black rhino.

Wildlife ACT assists Ezemvelo KZN Wildlife with monitoring endangered species and captured this groundbreaking footage in the process. Volunteer with Wildlife ACT:
