Sumatran Rhino on Borneo -- not AOTW

Well, you know what, I am going to start doing this more often. Seems silly that that crazy rhino story is announced and I can't comment until Monday. So, it may still be AOTW next week, it may not be, but here is a link to that video of the Borneo subspecies of Sumatran rhino (Dicerorhinus sumatrensis harrissoni -- eastern Sumatran rhino).
As editors at The Lancet will know, Sumatran rhinos are the hairiest of all the rhinos. Even these erudite and learned folks may not know that these rhinos are the closest living relatives of the woolly rhinoceroses that inhabited Eurasia during last ice age.
