Playing in traffic

One-month-old Flannery, a baby rhino, holds up traffic at Knowsley Safari Park in Prescot, Merseyside. Flannery approaches the vehicles and even stands directly between them.

Concerned mom Meru keeps on nudging her curious son – who stands barely higher than a car tire – back to safety on the grass, but the white rhino calf is soon back out on the road nosing around the motors.

David Ross, general manager of Knowsley Safari Park in Prescot, Merseyside, said: “The way Flannery plays with the cars really is remarkable and he’s proving incredibly popular with our visitors. This sort of behavior is quite unusual and could reflect the fact there are no other young rhinos for him to play with at the moment.”
