For the second time (the video above is the first sighting), a Sumatran rhino in Borneo has shown itself on camera. This guy is one of about 25 or 50 individuals known to remain in the wild. A camera trap was successful in capturing the subject, thought to be a young female.
The rainforests of Borneo are waging a last-ditch battle against loggers, palm oil farmers and poachers. Habitat encroachment is the greatest threat.
