And now for some news from the animal kingdom: In South Africa a genet has been seen riding on the backs of a rhino and buffalo, in separate incidents caught on camera.

The genet in question is nicknamed Genet Jackson, and was spotted by Wildlife ACT at a game reserve. This kind of behaviour has never been seen before, and is considered a world-first.

The conservationists believe the wildcat might be using the animals as a vantage point while hunting. Genets are small spotted cats that usually live in trees, hunting insects, birds, frogs and rodents.

To be honest, I’m more worried about the massive green laser beams coming out of its eyes.
