When a rhino charges your game vehicle, that's usually pretty bad news ... but when the "attacker" is only a few months old, it's pretty hysterical. 

The video, which shows the young rhino engaging in some playful charging with mom, was captured on a game reserve in South Africa. Play-fighting like this is an important part of the baby's development, as it will need those skills to defend its territory as an adult.

You'll notice the ID collar around the adult rhino's foot – a harrowing reminder that these animals have to be closely monitored if they are to be protected from poachers. For ways you can help, check out this list we made last year.
