Wild cat caught on film riding larger animals as personal taxis.
A particular lazy genet in South Africa has been pictured several times over the past year perched on the back of larger animals, including a rhino.
Either this little guy is trying to get a better platform to see potential prey, or he just likes to go on joy rides.
For the first time ever, this genet gets caught red handed by a reserve camera that monitors the area.
The clip below shows the stripy big cat atop of the rhino, swishing it's tail and appearing to bat insects away with its paws. Eventually, the rhino gets irritated with the cat using it as a viewing platform/ taxi and tries to shake the genet off. As the rhino storms away, the genet lets out a cry but clings on- and the rhino disappears from view.
The big cat has become so popular from it's clever antics that it even has its own twitter account now, under the name Genet Jackson.
We can't wait to see what this little guy does next! We here at i iz cat like this cat's style.
