Rumble in the jungle: Dramatic photos show testosterone-fuelled elephant flipping over black rhino as she protects her calf

Epic duel.

They are two giants of the animal kingdom, but that did not stop this male elephant and black rhino from clashing dramatically in a fearsome fight at a park in Africa.

Amateur photographer Louis Kok and his wife Marthie captured these extraordinary photographs of the large elephant attacking the female rhino – flipping it into its back and leaving it with its legs in the air.

The couple from Pretoria, South Africa, were photographing a rhino cow and her calf when the testosterone-fuelled, one-tusked elephant approached.

Tossed and turned: The large male elephant charges at the female rhino and flips it onto its side
