Sumatran rhinoceros driven to EXTINCTION in the wild in Malaysia. An animal that was once found across most of Southeast Asia has now been reduced to less than 100 individuals in Indonesia's wild and nine in captivity. And humans are largely to blame, a study says.
The Sumatran rhinoceros (Dicerorhinus sumatrensis) has a coat of reddish-brown hair, a sort-of tropical version of the extinct woolly rhino. The Sumatran rhino is critically endangered: fewer than 300 are estimated to survive in the jungles of Sumatra, Borneo and the Malay Peninsula
