If you are someone who likes seeing adorable videos of animals, then here is a clip which will put a smile on your face. Shared on Sheldrick Wildlife’s official Twitter handle, the video shows keepers of a black rhino named Apollo pampering him.

“While orphaned black rhino Apollo is more than capable of coating himself in mud, our pampered boy enjoys the indulgence all the same! His Keepers are happy to oblige while he’s still a junior so that he saves his energy for daily lessons in foraging,” they wrote while sharing the video.

The clip shows the two keepers putting mud on the animal as it patiently enjoys the pampering session. At one point he even rolls over to let the keepers put some mud on his stomach. Texts appearing on the screen further explain about how Apollo enjoys this activity with his keepers.
