No, can’t explain it. Obviously, there is some chemistry about hyenas that draw other animals to them…as witnessed by the lone wild dog who apparently can’t get enough of them. Some times nature is better left unexplained and just appreciated.

How about this? The rhino MAY have been lying in a spot where a smell got on his rear, that was liking to the hyena. Who knows-just a guess!!! Stranger things have happened!Look at the wild dog taking up w/ the hyenas????

maybe the rhino left his Mrs. and asked the hyena to check and make sure he still had genetalia?

I love hearing about the strange encounters of animals. Sometimes there is no explanation that we humans can interpret, we just have to accept and appreciate the oddities of nature..

Thanks for sharing..

could it be that this hyena and Rhino have known each other from a young age and this is how they greet each other?

Were Mak and PB worried about the hyenas??

Amazing interaction, perhaps the Rhino wanted a companion.
