Wild Rhino Demands Belly Rub From Cameraman

It was just another ordinary day for cameraman Garth De Bruno Austin, who was shooting a conservation film about rhino poaching in South Africa, when he was suddenly approached by a rhino asking for a belly rub. All of this was captured in a 15-second video that proves even rhinos need some TLC every now and then.

“If a rhino walks straight up to you while you’re filming and wants some rubs… you better rub that rhino like your life depends on it!,” Austin writes. “Lucky for me she left my URSA Mini 4K camera alone!”

Austin is quick to warn that rhinos can be extremely dangerous and that although this rhino was a wild one, the man had managed to build up a level of trust with the animal after spending years filming it.
