hitchhiking genet

When some of the world’s largest mammals come your way, most animals steer clear. Not the genet. The small cat-like carnivore was captured on film riding around on the back of both a rhino and buffalo earlier this month in South Africa’s Hluhluwe-iMfolozi Park. Conservationists were very surprised when they reviewed photos snapped by their camera trap showing this hitchhiking behavior never seen in the mammal before.  smithsonianscience.org
