Despite a common myth, there is no evidence that rhinos stamp out forest fires.This legend seems to have originated long ago in Southeast Asia, referring to the badak api or “fire rhino”. The notion was reinforced much more recently in the movie The Gods Must be Crazy, in which a white rhinoceros charges into a bush camp and stomps out the camp fire. The truth is that, like most animals, rhinos have an instinctive aversion to fire and are much more likely to skedaddle than attempt to rush in and put out a fire.
Thanks Vijay! Hope you get to visit the park soon and share more spots of this magnificent animal!
Ok, I have added it.
