PHOENIX — Lifting a massive tree trunk would be arduous work for a group of humans, but it’s just a walk in the park for a rhino at the Phoenix Zoo.

In fact, video from the zoo showed their newest resident, a 6-year-old rhino named Chutti, having fun with the palm tree and delighting visitors by showing off his impressive strength.

The greater one-horned rhino can be seen casually balancing the log on the bridge of his snout and even sending it airborne while Chutti trotted around his pool.
