Original text on this topic:
It has not yet been clearly shown that Borneo has neither elephant nor rhinoceros, in view of the fact that the mountainous parts in the north and in the interior have never been traversed, but in all places where travellers whom we can trust or where they could ask the locals, there is not yet any indication of the existence of these two pachyderms on the island. There are two species of rhinoceros on Sumatra and Java.
