Original text on this topic:
There are two species of rhino in Southeast Asia - Rhinoceros sumatrensis and R. sondaicus. The former is commoner and smaller than the latter which, except for a small concentration of about 50 animals in the Udjung Kulon Reserve at the western tip of Java, is not known to exist for certainty elsewhere in Southeast Asia. Still, during my work in Tenasserim, Southern Burma, in 1960, I heard reports that there might be some in the remote jungle on the Burma-Thailand border east of Tavoy.
