The flying rhinos

The flying rhinos

"I can see my cave from here!"

Anyone who might have labelled rhinos as a bit too sensible (behind their massive backs obviously) will be eating their words after catching this surprising set of pictures.

Showcasing a previously unseen thrill-seeking side, these guys decided to organise an ambitious stunt in South Africa that involved them hanging upside-down for 1900 km.

Okay so that's not strictly true. The pictures are actually showing a mission which aimed to transport 19 of the endangered black rhino population to a secret new location. Oh and they were sleeping as well.

This is actually a more humane way of transportation as they're sleeping for a shorter amount of time.

But they are missing the view, which is inhumane if you ask us.
