Location: Asia - South East Asia - Borneo
Subject: Distribution - Records
Species: Sumatran Rhino

Original text on this topic:
Rhino droppings and tracks were found by an Australian geologist on a recent survey in the Meratus area (E 115.74 S 1.72). The supposed sighting of rhino signs in the Meratus 'Mountains has not been substantiated and a request for further information has remained unanswered. The exact location of the sighting was a guess, because there is a mountain named G. Meratus and a mountain range named the Meratus Mountains. These two possible location sites could therefore be as far apart as 200km. Supposedly, there are photographs available of the reported tracks and faeces, but so far these have not been obtained.
