In the wild, the motto is “eat or be eaten,” so when an intelligent African elephant was approached by an aggressive rhino, it did something unexpected to outsmart his opponent.
The elephant isn’t willing to lose the battle and decided to scare off the rhino with… a stick. For those who don’t know, rhinos have VERY bad eyesight but great hearing. The elephant seems to know this and tosses the stick. The sound of the falling stick scares the rhino.
Because the rhino can’t find the threat (because it’s a stick) it begins to back down. The elephant has won this round and avoids a massive brawl.
