Species: Sumatran Rhino

Original text on this topic:
An informant saw foot prints the size of a food plate in 1984, which he assumed to be of the rhinoceros. He clearly described the shape and three toes that were visible in the print. (Location: E 114.05 S 0.68). Dudson et al. (1990) reported the following: `Sumatran rhinoceros and banteng were both rumoured by local people to occur to the north-east of Barito Ulu (E 114.31 N 0.49). While these reports are best treated with extreme caution, it is worthwhile recording them, considering the critical global status of these species'.
