Wild Rhino Asks Photographer for a Belly Rub

Rhinos are territorial creatures – and they can be quite dangerous, especially to humans, because they can easily charge at you in full speed and try to batter you so you would be scared enough to refrain from encroaching on their territory ever again. That’s if you survive, of course.

But not all rhinos are wild and scary, it would seem. One has built a friendship with a photographer, Garth de Bruno Austin; however, you should know that it took Austin several years of trying to befriend the rhino before the animal let him come close!

Still, it was amazing to watch the two together, with the rhino even ‘asking’ Austin for a belly rub! Strange but incredible, isn’t it?

The unlikely friendship started when Austin began visiting the rhino’s home for various photography projects and because he was simply enamored by the raw beauty of the African savannah.

In his years of enjoying the beautiful creatures of South Africa, he has also become an advocate for their conservation. He strongly opposes unethical animal poaching practices, something that is quite common in the country.

To raise awareness against poaching, Austin decided to make a film about it – featuring the wild rhinos and other animals targeted for the trade, of course. It was during one of these moments that the crew took a video of a rhino rushing towards Austin, not to make him get out of its territory but only to ask for some belly rubs! Cute, isn’t it?

Are Rhinos Dangerous?

Yes! While rhinos are herbivores and won’t likely have interest in catching you as food, they are very territorial animals and could easily crush humans and other animals to death so it could drive them away from its home…

So, if you happen to get a chance to view a wild rhino, don’t attempt to give it belly rubs!

Caught On Cam: House That Was Once Used As A Hospital Has Uninvited Guests

It’s easy to say that there is a ghost or something paranormal in your home. Sometimes when you feel something, or you “know” that there is something in your house, no one will believe you even if you told them.

Some ghosts are caught in CCTV cameras like this one who smashed a glass door or this poltergeist who has been terrorizing a school corridor, which was caught on camera twice.

On the other hand, some ghosts also show themselves on casual photos and videos. It is still unknown how ghosts are able to show themselves in photos and videos.

This is why a lot of people are setting up cameras to capture what it is that has been bothering them.

In Kent, an eerie moment was caught in that camera that was originally set up to watch over the family’s two French bulldogs.

The house in which the ghost was caught was a Grade II listed building that was once used as a hospital. The family who is living there is now convinced that their house was haunted and that they are sharing it with uninvited guests.

While the family was sleeping, the camera caught a misty figure that came through the door at the back. The owner was wondering what it was because the door where it came from was a private garden.

“Being a skeptic I was thinking of what else it could be but our living room backs onto a private garden so there was very little it could be.”

It appeared to glide from the door to the adjacent room, away from the camera’s view.

But only to return from the bottom of the screen to glide around the living room again.

The family shared that there were also times that one of their dogs would growl without apparent reason.

“On the run-up to the footage our youngest dog kept staring into our hallway and on a couple of occasions growled but we just dismissed this and thought he was still settling in.”

The owner of the house, Stephen Lee, did not believe at first, but after having a couple of eerie things happen after they discovered the video, he is now ready to accept that it could be something supernatural.

“Since the footage we’ve had a couple of eerie things happen – especially since we’ve put up the Christmas tree where lights have flickered on and off consecutively.”

It’s Christmas time again and Christmas pageants are being performed in various places, most especially in schools where kids play the part of the people (and animals) in the Christmas story. For many parents, this is among the highlights of the Christmas program as they watch their kids retell the story of Christmas.

But when it comes to kids, you should really expect the unexpected – just like this school Christmas pageant which turned into an adorable brawl when a kid playing a sheep got a little bored on stage and decided to ‘kidnap’ baby Jesus so she could play with the dolly herself. LOL.

As expected in this modern world, there were lots of cameras to record the whole proceeding, including the adorable suspect’s mom.

Tana Benson was recording the Christmas pageant starring the kids at First Baptist Church of White Pine in White Pine, Tennessee. Her daughter, 2-year-old Teegan, plays a sheep.

But as the choir sang “Away in a Manger”, little Teegan got a little bored just sitting there by herself and watching the other kids with the dolly baby Jesus in the middle. She stood up and took the blanket off before taking the baby Jesus out of the manger, cuddling the dolly while slowly dancing on the stage.

The ‘kidnapping’ sent the crowd in a fit of giggles but a horrified ‘Mary’ stood up to take her baby back from the kidnapper sheep. This turned into an adorable brawl that got more laughs from the audience. An indignant Mary was able to get the baby back but the cheeky little sheep ‘kidnapped’ him again.

When the adorable brawl appeared to turn into a full-fledged fight, the adults realized it was time to intervene.

The amused sheep’s mom just had to post this on Facebook, saying this is certainly a program she will always remember. Within days, the video received 10 million views and over 258k shares on social media. A lot of people were certainly amused by this cheeky little sheep.

If you have a toddler at home who loves watching YouTube videos, there is absolutely no way that you haven’t heard about Ryan’ Toy Review.

It is a YouTube toy-review channel wherein the host is a kid himself. The kid is the 7-year-old Ryan who features toys and board games that they actually play with.

Ryan, together with his Mommy and Daddy started his channel when he was three. He started as just another fan of toy-review videos when he asked his parents if he can have his own channel.

They created one and posted videos of him they started in March 2015.

Their first video was of him buying a toy in the store, going home and then playing with it. As of today that video already has over 30 million views.

By July 2015, they posted a video with Disney’s Cars theme and it went viral.

The channel then grew to a whopping 10 million subscribers! The subscribers alone are enough to give them $1 million a month. What more with the other views and advertisements.

Ryan made it to the Forbes’ annual list of highest-earning YouTube celebrities.

Before, their videos were only of him and his Daddy. Mommy was always behind the camera and just taking the video.

Along with this, they created another channel where they feature their adventures as a family. They called it “Ryan’s Family Review” where they can be seen enjoying the day.

When Kate and Emma learned to walk, their whole fandom rejoiced with them. Unlike Ryan which we first saw when he was already 3, the viewers were able to watch Kate and Emma and all their milestones.
