[Protected Status: ENDANGERED] The two-horned Sumatran rhinoceros shares the bleak distinction of world’s most endangered rhino with its regional cousin, the Javan rhino. The smallest of the rhino family, the Sumatran rhinoceros lives in isolated pockets in dense mountain forests of Malaysia, Indonesia, and possibly Myanmar (Burma). Listed as critically endangered, there are less than 400 Sumatran rhinos in existence today. While some are in zoos, they rarely breed in captivity.

Sumatran rhinoceros: "This rhino, the world's smallest, is sometimes nicknamed 'hairy rhino' from the shaggy coat that it grows in captivity. In the wild, however, the rubbing of forest vegetation keeps the hair on its reddish-brown hide short and bristly, except for longer tufts on the ears and tail." 100 Animals To See Before They Die www.bradtguides.com
