Description:

The Javan rhino (Rhinoceros sondaicus) is the rarest of the world's large mammals. Javan rhinos are very large indeed - up to ten feet long, five feet high and weighing as much as two tons. Loose folds of dusky gray skin give the appearance of armor plating. The skin is hairless and consists of polygonal disks that resemble the scales of a reptile. Although Javan rhinos have small eyes and poor vision, their wide nostrils and erect ears give them acute senses of smell and hearing.

The Javan rhino's natural habitat is the low-lying rainforests of Southeast Asia. These rhinos prefer to live alone, wallowing in muddy pools during the day to keep cool and evade insects. Insects are an ever-present plague on these rhinos. Javan rhinos are often accompanied by birds that feed on infesting insects and act as sentinels.

Javan rhinos are mostly nocturnal, wandering and browsing for foliage after the sun sets. Their favorite types of foliage include shoots, twigs and fallen fruits. The Javan rhino has a prehensile upper lip, which is used to pull food into the mouth. These powerful animals can rip down branches and uproot trees to bring food within reach.

Most rhinoceroses live alone, except for mating pairs and mothers with young. Although they spend much of their time alone, rhinos are communicative, with at least ten different types of vocalizations. Mating is generally preceded by a few days of courtship, a long chase and a fight.

Adult rhinoceroses are formidable beasts, not often in danger from predators. But mothers are sometimes required to defend their young from members of the large cat family. Rhinos attack with their horns, charging at speeds of up to 20 miles per hour. Mothers remain with their young for about four years, guiding them gently with their horns. Calves stay close to their mothers for the first year or two of their lives, until they are weaned. Females reach full growth at 4 years, males at 6 years. Javan rhinos can live up to 21 years in captivity.

Once the Javan rhino was a common sight across much of Southeast Asia. But after years of over hunting and habitat loss, fewer than sixty members of the species survive today. All remaining Javan rhinos live in Ujung Kulon National Park in Western Java. Even these few remaining animals are at risk from poachers and disease.
