Javan Rhinoceros

The Javan rhinoceros is a pure, herbivorous browser but was historically a mixed feeder, a more adaptable feeder than other rhinos.

Javan rhinoceroses appear to be more adaptable feeders than other rhino species.

In the tropical rainforest, where the species now survives, it’s a pure, herbivorous browser, but it was possibly a mixed feeder and both browsed and grazed on leaves, young shoots, twigs, and fruit in other parts of its historic range.
