Introduction: How to Out Run a Rhinoceros

Have you or will you ever found yourself running from a Rhino?
Learn how to outrun, and outsmart, a Rhino!!!

Step 1: Confrontation

Rhinoceros' are primarily found on the continent of Africa.
The most important thing to remember that when a Rhino is chasing after you, it is running out of primal fear of you...so be the stronger of the two (don't cry).

Step 2: Now What!?!?

So if your running and do not know what to do next, slow down.
Stop and wait for the Rhino to come to you.
At the last moment, jump out of the Rhino's path. Rhino's can not see straight, so this method is the most effective against them.

Step 3: Natural Enemies

When being chased, look for some natural advantages.

The first being the tree.
*A tree can be a great friend to you. If you don't believe me, then read Shel Silverstein's THE GIVING
TREE.
*While running, climb up a tree. The Rhino will loose sight of you and eventually give up, or he will
run unto the tree and get stuck.

The second being a cliff.
*The cliff a last ditch effort, granted you find one.
*Run toward a cliff and dodge out of the way of the Rhino.
*The Rhino will probably run of the cliff and most likely die.

Step 4: Relax!

If you have implemented one of the strategies successfully, you will have, hopefully, lived!
So sit back and relax!!!
You have out ran and out smarted a Rhino!

Step 5: Closing Comments

This is not based on expierience or reliable zoologists.
However, this is what I would do if confronted with a charging Rhino.

Warning!: Do not go out and try to be chased by a Rhino...it is not a smart move.

    the giving tree is a good book

    I think that a instructables should be useful... Frankly, I don't think this one is of any use. You are talking about a dangerous situation involving a wild animal. Any common person should be kept away, in safety, from a wild animal. Any contact with a wild animal must be under the sight of a professional... I think any event out of this context can become a accident, a very serious accident. People can get hurt, or even worse, the rhino can get hurt. So I think that we should leave rhinos on Africa, in peace. And if you ever get a close call with a rhino, start thinking from the point "Why the hell I put myself on that situation?", this could clarify things a bit.

    I'd just pull out my handy elephant gun.

    I'm not sure an elephant gun works on Rhinos

    It won't work because a rhino's not an elephant, what you need is heavy machine gun with flamethrowing capacities, you can shoot stuff then scare it away with the fire... the gun bit is solely to amuse you while waiting for the rhino to get close enough.

    indeed or possibly my big project on the way, I'd say a rhino would be stopped in it's tracks by this, sadly I have way too many big projects I want to do, including the colossus project, but that involves welding, the rhino stopper involves a bit more money and rocket bike looks to be a null point until I can build my own rocket engines. Think saturn IV for your skate board....

    "I shoot the Hippopotamus with bullets made of platinum, because if I use the leaden one his hide is sure to flatten em." by Hilaire Belloc a crazy poet (worth checking out). I like it, a nice simple instructable and a valuable tip if ever I get chased. Never try to climb a tree when being cased by a bear though, becuase bears can run as fast a horse along the flat and up a tree!
