The name “Andatu” means “Gift from God” in Bahasa. Andatu is one of only 100 Sumatran Rhinos left in the world. He lives in Way Kambas National Park in Sumatra, Indonesia along with 1 adult male and three adult females at the Sumatran Rhino Sanctuary. Rarely seen by visitors, this picture of Andatu was taken when he was only 1 month old, in July 2012. Efforts are being made to preserve the little remaining habitat for this very rare rhino, and at the same time, protecting endangered Sumatran Tigers and Elephants. Andatu is enjoying a little breakfast in this picture.
