The Northern Sumatran rhinoceros Dicerorhinus sumatrensis lasiotis , also known as Chittagong rhinoceros or northern hairy rhinoceros was the most widespread subspecies of Sumatran rhinoceros , as well as the only known subspecies native to mainland Asia. While it has been officially declared as extinct on multiple occasions in early 20th century, it has been reported that small populations might still exist in the wild, such as in Burma and the Malaysian Peninsula , though it is highly doubtful. The mainland subspecies of the Sumatran rhinoceros was given the name Dicerorhinus sumatrensis lasiotis. The name lasiotis is derived from the Greek for "hairy-ears", as the Northern Sumatran rhinoceros has remarkable longer fur on the ears. The Northern Sumatran subspecies was also called hairy-eared Sumatran rhinoceros or ear-fringed rhinoceros for that reason. There was a debate whether the Dicerorhinus sumatrensis lasiotis specimen should be considered as a separate subspecies from the similar nominate Dicerorhinus sumatrensis sumatrensis specimen from Indonesia. However, it remained a subspecies as the northern Sumatran rhinoceros was significantly larger, with unusual longer hair on the ears, and longer and bigger horns.
The Indian rhinoceros Rhinoceros unicornis , also called the Indian rhino , greater one-horned rhinoceros or great Indian rhinoceros , is a rhinoceros species native to the Indian subcontinent. Moreover, the extent and quality of the rhino's most important habitat, the alluvial Terai-Duar savanna and grasslands and riverine forest , is considered to be in decline due to human and livestock encroachment. As of August , the global population was estimated to comprise 3, individuals, including 2, individuals in India and in Nepal. The Indian rhinoceros once ranged throughout the entire stretch of the Indo-Gangetic Plain , but excessive hunting and agricultural development reduced its range drastically to 11 sites in northern India and southern Nepal.
He is actually Taishang Laojun's Azure Bull. In the novel, the Single Horned Rhinoceros King is described as a fat, humanoid creature wearing armor. He has one single horn on his head, hence his name "Single Horned". Sun Wukong described him as "looks like a rhino".
