    Older post but .. rhino looks pretty casual. Doesn't look like it's at all stressed or exerting any effort. Or .. it's not in my house and I don't have a house big enough to put that in. :)

    This was my first thought on this magnificent piece! I love hyenas and understand that, when hungry enough, they may team up against a rhino (though not an adult if they can avoid it). But since our rhino is running hard here, I'd expect to see her mouth open and nostrils flared. But then I looked it up, and turns out rhinos can run incredibly fast for their size but, for whatever reason, their faces stay really stoic. Their mouths also stay closed when running hard (maybe to prevent exhaustion through moisture loss?) Props to the artist for placing accuracy above drama on this point.
