The Sumatran Rhinoceros was completed on 5.7.2010. There's something particularly satisfying about drawing rhinos. I suppose because they really look like nothing else on earth. I recall seeing my first one - a White - at a zoon in Arizona. I was stunned at how large they are. With the completion of the Sumatran, the only extant rhino I haven't drawn is the Javan. UPDATE: I completed the Javan Rhino.
The Sumatran Rhinoceros is one of the five extant rhinos and the only living member of the genus Dicerorhinus. This rainforest dwelling mammal once ranged throughout the jungles of India, Bhutan, Bangladesh and much of Southeast Asia. But due to poaching (mostly or black market sales of their valuable horns) and habitat loss they live only in small, isolated areas in Sumatra, Borneo and Malaysia. They are the smallest of the living rhinos, standing about 4.5 feet tall at the shoulder and weighing about 1500 pounds. They are considered critically endangered. Fewer than 275 are believed to be alive in the wild.
