A baby rhino found an ingenious way to scratch himself by rubbing against a log.

Orphaned calf Bhanoyi had just enjoyed a mud bath at the Zululand Rhino Orphanage in South Africa, when he came across the fallen tree.

Straddling the log, the restless rhino rubs himself back and forth to really get his scratch in.

Megan Lategan, orphanage manager, said: “Bhanoyi does this a lot.

“Rhinos often mud bath and then rub themselves on trees or rocks to remove ticks and because it feels really good.

“We love watching the rhinos rub because you can see how much they love it! This makes us really happy.”
