Your daily dose of entertainment from the African savannah: a massive white rhino indulging in a satisfying scratch!
This video captures the hilarious moment of a massive white rhino scratching its itch on a rock.
They are characterized by their immense size, broad, square lips, and two horns made of keratin.
Contrary to its name, the ‘white’ in white rhino is a misinterpretation of the Afrikaans word ‘wyd,’ referring to its wide mouth adapted for grazing.
One of the primary methods is through their dung, which they strategically deposit at specific spots known as ‘middens.’
These serve as information centers, conveying messages about the individual’s age, sex, and reproductive status.
This tells us that this incident isn’t about territory marking, at least not primarily. This is simply just a good scratch.
