The wildlife cameraman was left in fits of laughter as the elephant began rubbing its bum up and down a sandy ditch.

The baby’s facial expression shows it’s providing great satisfaction.

Shazaad found the clip hilarious and has since decided to share it with friends and family.

He added: “Elephants do tend to rub themselves but trees to satisfy an itch but this baby’s relief from the scratch is simply hilarious.
