Do you know what a group of rhinoceros is called? A crash! There are only five remaining rhino species: White, Black, Indian, Sumatran and Javan. The Javan rhino is the most endangered rhino species in the world. Poachers kill and maim rhinos for their horns which the Chinese and Vietnamese use in traditional medicine. Rhino horn has no medicinal value. It is made of the same material as human toenails or fingernails - keratin. The Javan rhino officially became extinct in Vietnam in 2011. There are few remaining in Indonesia.
