Crash of the rhinos! Pictures show group taking a nap

A group of very sleepy rhinos were caught catching up on some sleep in the evening sunlight.

White rhinos are very rarely seen in big groups, including a mum and young calf, and can be seen basking at the Kragga Kamma Game Park, in Botswana.

She said: “Our own rhino are dehorned in an attempt to safeguard them and it’s an ever-growing trend as over a thousand rhino a year are being poached in southern Africa.

“It’s increasingly a seldom seen sight to see Rhinos with their horns still intact.

Rhino with such big horns are usually very well-known and protected against poaching.
