A calf weighs about 35 – 50 kg at birth,
Less than 60 known in the wild (2005). There are only two known populations, in the Udjung Kulon National Park in Java (Indonesia) & the Cat Tien National Park in Vietnam. There are two major reasons for its decline. The first one is poaching of the rhino for its horn which is valued highly for use in Oriental medicine and in Yemen horns are carved to make dagger handles. The second reason is habitat loss due to clearing of lowland forest. The most critical threat in Vietnam is the conversion of forestland into agricultural land.
Approx 300 (2005). Due to overhunting and habitat loss, it has been reduced to small, scattered populations. In recent times its largest concentrations have been in Sumatra (Indonesia) & the Malay Peninsula (Malaysia). Also on Borneo in Sabah (Malaysia) & in small numbers in Myanmar and Thailand.
Many people describe these rhinos as armour-plated, but they are actually covered with a layer of skin that has many folds. Also called the greater one-horned rhino, they are native to swampy areas of Northeast India and Nepal.
It was well adapted to the cold; it had thick, shaggy fur, small ears, short legs, and a massive body (all to lessen heat loss). Fossils of this early rhino have been found, in addition to well-preserved corpses, which were found in frozen gravel in Siberia. Stone Age humans hunted woolly rhinos; they drew pictures of the rhinos on cave walls 30,000 years ago, giving us even more information about these large mammals.
