SEE OUR MAIN IMAGES:  A small oxpecker bird cuddles into the horn of a rhinoceros as it tries to sharpen its beak on the beast's horn.  These photos were shot in a private game reserve in South Africa as an oxpecker sharpened its beak on the horn of a white rhino while it grazed on grass.<br />
<br />
The bird looked like it was cuddling the rhino and having a nap in the crevice between the horn and its face.  SEE OUR COPY FOR DETAILS.<br />
