A rare Javan rhinoceros has been captured on surveillance camera gleefully rolling around in the khaki, tropical waters of Ujung Kulon National Park, on the westernmost tip of Indonesia's Java island. The endangered Javan rhino, or Rhinocerus sondaicus, is one of only 72 left in the wild. The population of the heavy, herbivorous animals has declined mainly due to illegal poaching and the excessive demand for rhino horn and medicine. Courtesy: UJUNG KULON NATIONAL PARK
