This hilarious footage shows the moment a black rhino sees off his love rival right in the middle of the action.

The rhino can be seen striding with purpose towards the other male who is sharing a moment of passion with the female rhino.

Caught on camera by the photographer, Matt Yardley, the rhino pushes his rival off the female before he comes crashing down and sneaks in to have his wicked way.

Matt, 30, from Durban, South Africa, said: “This is an exceptionally rare sighting, I will not see this interaction again.

“The sheer power of a rhino and the funny interaction.

“I was amazed.”

Matt was on a guided tour of the Phinda Private Game Reserve as a field guide and was in a vehicle just 30 metres away when the show down took place back in December.

Matt explains that it could have been risky getting too close to the rhinos and said: “The dominant rhino may have charged the vehicle defending his prize.”
