One of the world's rarest rhinos was caught on film for the first time on Borneo island, recently. Malaysian officials of global conservation
organisation wwf said the two-minute video, recorded early this year by a camera hidden in the jungle, was the first to
capture the behaviour of the elusive two-horned Borneo rhino in the wild.
There are only between 25 and 50 of the rhinos left alive in the dense jungles deep in the heart of the Malaysian state of Sabah on Borneo, and the
animals are so secretive that the first still picture of one was only taken last year, a wwf representative said.
The video clip shows the huge animal foraging in undergrowth, breathing heavily as it approaches the camera close enough for viewers to glimpse its
eyes and long front horn, along with the individual hairs on its chin and the wrinkles on its neck.
