Original text on this topic:
Both elephants and rhinoceroses find their way on to the island of Kisseraing. The rhinoceros, I was informed by Mr Leslie, of the Maleewon Police, whose duties frequently took him past Campbell and Forbes Islands, occurred on those islands. Species unknown. He also told me that he had once met a two-horned rhinoceros swimming in the sea close to High island, about 20 miles distant from the main land, but with islands everywhere in sight.
