Footage of one of the world's most endangered and rarely seen animals, the Java rhino, has been revealed. Fewer than 60 are believed to remain in the world.

The video, filmed by the conservation group WWF around Indonesia's Ujung Kulon National Park, shows a mother and calf and a large male wallowing in mud holes, and a female chasing a wild pig.
