‘Video trap’ captures rare rhino

Scientists have captured video footage of a rare rhino using a “video camera trap” positioned in the dense jungle of Borneo.

There are probably only 25 to 50 Borneo rhinos left on the Malaysian island, and they are so shy that the first still photos were only taken last year.

The video shows the 1,500-pound animal foraging in undergrowth when it spots the camera and moves in for a closer look.

  1. To whom it may concern, I could not find the video. I looked for it, but it just told information about the rare rhino. Could you give derections to see the video from the link? Thank you.

  2. Samurai … when you click on that link, look for a link on the right side of the page that says “Live video of the Borneo rhino.” Click on that and you should go to a page with the video on it.

    The video is in a small box on the right side of the page, about halfway down.

    If it doesn’t work, you may have to check to see if you have the Flash plugin installed.

  3. Boyslife.org, Thank you for giving me more detalied information to finding the video. I saw it and loved it!
