African Elephant

On the Serengeti Plains, a white rhinoceros is grazing until he feels the ground shaking. A bull African bush elephant is coming the rhinoceros's way. The rhino sees that pachyderm as a prominent threat and challenges the tusker. The elephant trumpets at the rhino, and both combatants charge. The rhinoceros goes for a charge-and-thrust maneuver, but the much smarter elephant dodged at the last second. The rhino then tries to stab the elephant's throat with its horn, but the elephant is too tall. The rhino then attempts an agile headbutt, but the pachyderm defends quickly with his head, trunk, and tusks. than stabs the rhinoceros with his tusks, breaking one of them in the process. the elephant finally topples and crushes the rhino under his weight, killing him. The battle won, the pachyderm trumpets for victory, retaining his heavyweight title.
