This bounding baby rhino has really made our Friday morning.

The 42kg youngster was pictured frolicking with his mum on safari in St. Lucia, South Africa.

As you can see, he's quite the little poser and was more than happy to leap and gamble around in the camera's gaze.

"At first sight the little rhino had me in awe," Safari tour guide Robyn Bamber said. "Then shortly after scrambling for my camera, he had guests and myself all entertained and laughing.

"The female rhino started to make her way up the road away from us with the little rhino racing ahead. Then, as if to say, 'Mom watch this', the little rhino came charging straight towards us."

Rhinos are severely endangered, with South Africa alone losing more than two a day at the moment to poaching. Their threatened status makes photos like these all the more rare and enjoyable.

Take a look, below.
