Main Reasons Why Rhinos Are Transported Upside Down Using Helicopter

Wildlife services in Kenya have been instrumental in establishing a legal framework for the translocation of animals across protected areas. Animals may relocate because of things like drought, insufficient security, or disease. Relocating these species required a wide range of strategies. They rely heavily on trucks and helicopters as their principal modes of mobility.

One of the most evocative characteristics is the rhinoceroses' reversed posture in the helicopter. I'll break out why this method of transporting pets is essential in this section.

Doctor Robin says the animal's heart and lungs are robust enough to handle the rigors of flying inverted. When rhinos are thrown onto their sides, their blood flow is affected. The oxygenated blood is unable to reach the gas exchange areas of the lungs because of the force of gravity. The perfusion of a rhinoceros' lung is the same whether it is upright or hanging on its hind legs.

When animals don't have to utilize their legs excessively, they don't experience pain. They are just conscious of the strap tightening around their ankle at this point.
