    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.

    It's kinda hard to tell from the angle of the pic, but when animals run they dont have both feet on the rightside up while both feet on the left are 20201104_143321.jpg on the ground. They would be off balance. Imagine how your dog runs, for example.
    The only exception I can think of is pacing horses.
    I tried to find a simaler pic for an example. See how opposing feet on on the ground or off of it.(or in this case, almost off of it)
