Chris Packham's rhino stand-off

Chris Packham encounters a group of white rhinos in Kenya. These giant herbivores could run a man through, as soon as look at him, should they feel like it.

The good news is that their eyesight is appalling – which means that as long as Chris moves very slowly he can get quite close to them.

But they do have a very keen sense of smell - so there could be trouble if the wind changes. Rhinos like these provide a vital service to the savannah - by simply eating it and pooing on it.
