Cat-EYE cam and Idube Cam are down. Olifants River cam is down due to damaged fiber switches. We are working on solutions.

Do you have any idea why he is doing that katja ?

All I found is that ground horning is a dominance/threat display but I don't think that's what we saw.

I found this - Ground horning, when the horns and face are rubbed in mud or dry ground is form of territorial behaviour found in kudu as well as in nyala, bushbuck and wildebeest.

Thanks for looking....so that baby would then be around 2-3 years old although probably closer to 3 since it has been nursing pretty steadily since we have been watching it and only recently been pushed away...

Rhino. Image a little blur-blobby but definitely Rhino. I must say, when I see a lone Rhino like that I wish I were able to identify it as White or Black because alone like that, I think Black. Impossible to see the facial structure and lip details without a good zoom.
