Rhino Requests Belly Rubs From Filmmaker

While filming a nature documentary in Mozambique, filmmaker Garth DeBruno Austin had an amazing encounter with a full-grown female rhinoceros who came over for some belly rubs.

“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! Lucky for me she left my URSA Mini 4K camera alone! Please note that I have been lucky enough to film this rhino for quite a few years and because of that have built up a level of trust. DO NOT try and do this with a truly wild rhino as it may end up with you being dead! FYI – I did not approach this animal, it was completely her decision to let me come into her personal space and touch her.”
