Javan rhino: New footage shows one of world's rarest large animals is having babies

In the jungles of Indonesia, a camera trap has captured footage of a Javan rhinoceros calf, one of the rarest and most threatened large mammals on planet Earth.

Spotted alongside its mother, the Javan rhino calf was spotted in Indonesia’s Ujung Kulon National Park on the morning of March 4, 2024. The calf is estimated to be between 3 to 5 months old, but little else is known about the individual – it's not even certain whether it is male or female yet. 

The video (below) follows previous sightings in 2022 and 2023 that each showed other new Javan rhino calves, suggesting the troubled species is perhaps not as doomed as once thought.

But it is still doomed.  The wild acres are shrinking rapidly as the population of humans continue to grow.
