Main Reasons Why Rhinos Are Transported Upside Down Using Helicopter

Thanks to the work of the Kenyan wildlife services, the movement of animals between reserves is now legal throughout the country. Drought, inadequate security, and illness are just a few of the factors that can prompt animal movement. There were a wide variety of approaches needed to relocate these organisms. Their primary means of transportation are trucks and helicopters.

The inverted orientation of the rhinoceroses during helicopter transfer is one of the most striking features. Here, I'll explain why it's necessary to send pets in this fashion.

The animal's heart and lungs are strong enough to withstand the stresses of flying upside down, according to Doctor Robin. Rhinos' blood flow is altered when they are rolled onto their sides. Because of the pull of gravity, oxygenated blood cannot reach the lungs' gas exchange regions. A rhinoceros' lung is perfused in the same way whether it is standing or hanging upside down.

Animals don't feel any discomfort or agony because their leg muscles aren't overworked. During this time, they are only aware of the strap tightening around their ankle.
