At first, the baby rhinoceros was seen watching the lively goat charging around in circles and leaping up and down. Seconds later, the heavily-built young rhino was also seen joining in and skipping and jumping along with its goat friend.
The 14-second video quickly grabbed internet users’ eyeballs as they flooded the comment section with all sorts of reactions.
“This is adorable and hilarious at the same time!” wrote one user. “Rhinos can be quite friendly when they don’t identify you as a threat. The problem is that their poor eyesight and generational paranoia makes them identify nearly everything as a threat,” explained another.

The strange bond between two different species of animals is a delight to watch. Last month, a video showing a goat and his little monkey friend eating berries together also surfaced on social media.
In the clip, a man was seen calling out to the goat with a handful of berries. Hearing this, the goat, with a baby monkey clinging to its back, emerged from the woods. The two were seen relishing the berries.
