Badak Jawa or Javan Rhino (Rhinoceros sondaicus) is considered to be one of the world's rarest and most endangered of all mammals. Once it ranged over Bengal through Burma, Sumatra and Java but now only two populations remain. Up to 15 rhinos live along the Dong Nai River in Vietnam and 55 to 60 are left in Ujung Kulon National Park, their last home in Indonesia.
