Emu loves a good back scratch

WE all love a good back scratch now and again.

But it's hard to see anyone being as enthralled from a good scratch than this emu in Adelaide.

Filmed by Snake Catchers Adelaide, the emu literally turns to putty as a man approaches it and runs his hand across its feathers in his backyard.

The bird instantly drops to the ground and goes into a blissful state as the man obviously found the perfect spot to itch.

The emu is mesmerised for over a minute before the man finally releases it from his hypnotic fingers and suddenly, showing its natural speed, quickly runs out of the yard.
