Randy rhino sprays urine over snowy egret as it loyally treks behind


TALK about taking the pee. A randy rhino sprays urine over a snowy egret as the bird loyally treks behind.

The 178-stone beasts can wee up to 16ft to show off to potential mates. They allow eager egrets to sit on their backs to eat pesky ticks. 

Luckily, snapper Nagaraj Tilakraj was 30ft away at Nairobi National Park, Kenya.

He said: “I was watching the egret as it followed the rhino from right behind and I was just anticipating what was about to happen.

“The egret got showered but was truly committed to following the rhino no matter what.”

He added: “My son loves rhinos and giraffes and so we drove to Nairobi national park in the hope that we would be able to see these wonderful creatures.

“We came across a good number of rhinos at a place called Murram pit. I was driver-cum-photographer so I one hand steering and the other trying to hold my camera steady.

“The rhinos were resting at first and then walked around marking their territory before the action happened.

“Maybe this wasn’t the first time this had happened to the egret.”
