The things you learn from TBs.... While in South Africa I picked up Reggie the Rhino, who is about to make his way onto some verdant Scottish grazing. I see from his web-page that Reggie represents the African White Rhino and among the wealth of information about the beasts is the detail that the penis of the male White Rhino points backwards.

Now, I've never thought of rhinos as being well-endowed in the eyesight department nor very subtle or delicate in their manoeuvring. So is it any wonder that the species is endangered if reproduction can only be achieved by the couple carefully reversing into position? More trysts must fail simply from poor parking than from genetic incompatibility......Rolling Eyes Wink

I'm just reading that White Rhinos aren't white - they are in fact wide. You learn something new every day - apparently.

I thought about how this poor rhino would go about it's business,
but I just couldn't get my head around it.
Then I remembered a rather sweaty game of twister I once had Careful

And before you say anything Darling, Argue2 it was a long time ago.
