    I will cherish this video forever.

    You could put a lil prep h on his bum and see if he keeps doing it. That would tell you if hes itchy or just...weird.

    How old is he?
    I would say that is misplaced matting practice. Basically, he's reliving a bit of tension, not sure how else to put it.;)
    Does he have access to any hens?
    If you slide your hand under his rear end when he does this you can see if it is covered with spray.:)

    It's natural and currently the only way procreation works.

    Just because it's natural doesnt mean its pretty. Its natural for a baby koala to eat its mother's feces to conform to the diet of eucalyptus. Truly gross to watch.
