He finally escaped the crater. For months Suleiman the Black rhino had been climbing the caldera at Ngorongoro to escape to the outside. Suleiman was one of only seven Black rhinoceros, all males, still living there.

His ranger Michael kept shooing him back to the crater floor. Totally frustrated, Michael chose to let Suleiman keep going this time. He grabbed his rifle and followed the rhino into the Serengeti.

They walked for days. Finally, the rhino dashed into a small wood. Shortly after, he emerged behind a lovely female and started guiding her homeward. Michael laughed. Nature knows!

    Dear Roy I always get involved scrolling through your imaginative offerings; even with "Screen Blurry Eyes" - But, I have to take offense to 'Suleiman' - as my Love and fabulous artist 'Terrilynn' used the 'Horny Beast' in my story "Pick your Battles" - But, I reckon we can share - Not Terrilynn but the Rhino - You GiT that! - With Pleasure - Jay Kantor, Chatsworth, California 'Senior' Vocal Author - Vocal Author Community
