White rhino calves often walk in front of their mothers, in contrast to black rhino calves, who will usually stay behind their mother. This difference is suspected to be due to differences in grazing behaviour and habitat, black rhino are foragers and spend more time in thicker bush, which would be dangerous for a calve to lead into, where predators could be hiding.

Photographed 29 April, 2016. Kenya.
