Wildlife Wednesday: Say Cheese!

Okay, this is pretty cool.
Motion-activated cameras were placed in a wild animal preserve in Indonesia in the hope of capturing video of the very rare Javan Rhinoceros - so rare, in fact, that there are none in captivity and probably only about 40 total in the wild.
Well, not only did the cameras get one of these rare beauties on camera, but there is footage of two different females, each with her own calf. This is good news, because it means that they are breeding.

"Perceived medicinal properties." That just gets me so steamed that these animals are still being slaughtered for their horns. If it irritates you, too, or, if you just want to help to preserve these and other rare species in the wild, please give your support to the World Wildlife Fund. (They're the ones that set up the camera.)
