With one stamp of its feet, this two-ton wild rhino could crush a human with ease. But oblivious Elizaveta Tishchenk, 12, has become best friends with the beast and loves nothing more than to cuddle his leathery skin. The pair have struck up an extraordinary relationship since orphaned white rhino Max was found wandering through the Laikipia District of Kenya as a youngster. After being taken into the centre of rehabilitation at Ol Pejeta Conservancy, Kenya around three years ago, Max took a shine to the young girl while she was visiting the country. Despite being renowned for their aggressive nature, five-year-old Max likes Elizaveta to stroke his back gently as he tucks into some grass. And he even rolls around in the grass on his back so she can pat his stomach like a dog. Her father Alexey, 40, said: ' Rhino is completely comfortable with her. Elizaveta is very happy since she got her pet. She loves her new friend and doesnt stop talking about Max. TP
