Il est magnifique, quelle grande corne.
Bill Phillips: Splendid creatures
LOL @ Alan!
Nice shot of the big guy!
Is this a large zoo?
Bill Phillips: Not really. It is set in a lovely parkland and beautifully maintained
And here I thought mud was supposed to do wonders for your skin, Bill?!
Bill Phillips: Clearly the wrong sort of mud Ginnie

This looks very impressive, Bill and I hope you stayed at a safe distant. A few months ago a stupid French got out of the car (strictly forbidden) in a safari park in the Netherlands and they barely escaped, it was big news everywhere..(they got out twice to have a better look and the YouTube shows the second time.

It still has a horn. Maybe the poachers ran out of money for fuel.

Poor blighter ... but at least it won’t be shot by poachers

a nice shot to show how restrained power looks like, Bill. a tragedy that we do not leave them alone in peace.
Bill Phillips: It is a shame that they are poached for their horns.I believe that in the wild in some places they have removed their horns to try and protect them
Quite a beast, Bill....
Bill Phillips: Sure is Frank!
