Little and Large show...<br />
<br />
The bemused Rhino has to retreat...<br />
<br />
This plucky mother antelope ignores the golden rule of 'pick on someone your own size' and squares up to a whopping rhinoceros in a bizarre stand-off.<br />
<br />
The brave mum refused to back down when the three-tonne beast came a little too close to her newborn calf - and at one point even clashed horns with it.<br />
<br />
The protective mother antelope, called Ramina, kept her days-old baby Phoenix behind her at all times as she valiantly charged at the massive rhino, called Njanu, despite it being 15 times heavier.<br />
<br />
The unlikely scene was caught on camera by staff at Longleat Safari Park in Wilts.
