Location: Asia - South East Asia - Singapore
Subject: Museums
Species: Sumatran Rhino

Original text on this topic:
The most important addition, though it is only on loan, was a female Rhinoceros sumatrensis. It was caught in Perak for the Austrain Government, but died in Singapore before it could be shipped to Europe, and was mounted by the Museum staff. The Acting Consul-General for Austria, Mr. R. von Pustau, kindly allowed it to remain in the Museum, and it is hoped that it will be acquired permanently for the collection.
