News from the Natural World: Good Vibes Only – a Javan Rhino gets really tired with all the damn negativity from the rest of its species and just sets out to spread some good vibes.
Jakka was a Javan Rhino with dusky grey colour and a single horn of up to about 10 inches. His skin had a number of loose folds, giving Jakka the appearance of armour plating. Whilst similar in appearance to the closely related greater one-horned rhinoceros, he and the other Javan Rhinos have a much smaller head and less apparent skin folds. Jakka had always been different and he was by far the coolest of his tribe. But something was really beginning to get to him. It was grating on him day after day and becoming a real nuisance. What was it? The other Javan Rhinos were beginning to spread some seriously bad vibes.

But why were these Javan Rhinos trying to ruin Jakka’s buzz and also spread such bad vibes? The reason was that Javan Rhinos are the most threatened of the five rhino species, with only around 60 individuals that live only in Ujung Kulon National Park in Java, Indonesia. Javan Rhinos once lived throughout northeast India and Southeast Asia. Vietnam’s last Javan rhino was poached in 2010. The rest of the tribe were incredibly worried, with only 60 left they were one of the rarest animals on the planet. In addition, their habitat was being destroyed for profit. Furthermore, they were being hunted to satisfy insecure humans with tiny penises and climate change was threatening the balance. The rest of Jakka’s tribe just said they were spreading facts, not ‘bad vibes’.
