Bush Flies Blacken the Flanks of Gertie, Amboseli's "Tame" Rhinoceros A nervous, fretful beast with poor sight but keen scent and hearing, the black rhino charges man or car with little provocation. But two-ton Gertie, say the authors, "has become so accustomed to cars that she no longer bothers to attack on sight. She and her mother Gladys are the showpieces of Amboseli National Reserve." Since this 370 picture was taken, an unchivalrous male broke off Gertie's long front horn.
