Rare Javan Rhino footage

Just when a motion triggered camera was recording the extremely rare Javan Rhino, it decided that it was camera shy. Threw a tantrum like many Hollywood celebrities and wrecked the camera! Take a look at the video here: Rhino Video

The world's rarest rhinoceros has been captured on film by a specially installed camera in the jungles of Java, Indonesia. But the female rhino, which was accompanied by a calf, promptly charged the camera, sending it flying. The animals are at severe risk of extinction, with only 60-70 animals left in the wild. A spokesperson for WWF said the footage provided an unusual glimpse of the rare beasts in their natural habitat. (BBC)
