Young white rhino enjoys a good belly scratch on a tree

This young white rhino became extremely excited while getting rid of an itch on its belly.

Footage captured in Kruger National Park, South Africa, shows the little one scratching its body against a tree.

''While on safari in the Kruger National Park, we came across three white rhino that just finished rolling around in the mud. Our attention was drawn to the young rhino and its mother,'' the filmed said.

''They were covered in mud and started scratching themselves against a fallen tree. The little rhino stole the show with its incredible energetic behaviour and funny movements while scratching itself.''

The clip was captured on January 15.
