Hermes in a fight with his great rival


If you are tracking a certain black rhino population for over 25 years you can’t help but to become emotionally attached to the individuals.

You learn to tell them apart by their footprints, you recognize individual character triads and habits, you see them grow up and develop. Every time you track and find them you learn more about their incredible behavior and individual character.

The black rhino that arguably taught us the most was Hermes, who died from the wounds suffered in yet another fight with his great rival Columbus. Respect to this great beast of an ancient world.
