Javan Rhino, Grey-faced Elephant Shrew, and a Long-eared Jerboa

Remarkable images of the world's rarest rhino species, the Javan rhino, have been caught on film. A mother and her calf could be seen grazing in Ujung Kulon National Park in Java, Indonesia. But when she spotted the hidden camera, she charged and sent it flying.

Meanwhile, a bizarre-looking mammal called the grey-faced elephant shrew has been discovered in Tanzania. It didn't charge the camera...

A desert 'Mickey Mouse' has also been caught on film. The first known footage of a long-eared jerboa in the wild was filmed in the Mongolian Gobi desert.
