Bruton, R., 1963. The rhinos of South-East Asia. Conservation News 1963 August: 5-10, figs. 1-6, maps 1-2

Location: Asia
Subject: Ecology - Habitat
Species: Javan Rhino

Original text on this topic:
Both the Javan one-horned rhino and the Sumatran two-horned rhino are generally forest dwelling animals. The Javan rhino seems rather less adapted to steep terrain and lives mostly in low swampy areas or in more gradually sloped wet mountain forests. It is probable that both species were once common in lowland wet areas, but that they have been exterminated from these areas by man.
