The territory’s star animals
Gainda, our baby Indian rhino
Under the watchful lenses of Beauval’s video cameras, relive loving scenes between two of The Asiatic Plains’ Indian rhinos: Gainda, who has since left for another park, and his mother Henna.
What is the difference between an Indian rhino and a white rhino?
And no… It is nothing to do with colour!
Looking at the different rhino species side by side, one difference will probably become clearly obvious to you. Individuals belonging to the African species, the white rhino, and the black rhino, have two horns. Whereas Indian rhinos only have one horn!
« The Indian rhinoceros are something that I’ve not seen before (and we’ve been to a lot of zoos!) »

Beauval Nature reintroduces Javan langurs
Not far from the Asiatic Plains, you may have already seen the Javan langurs: small, agile, red, or black monkeys.
The Javan langur, which is native to Indonesia and is listed as a vulnerable species by the IUCN, has suffered an alarming population decrease. The illegal trade in these animals, hunting, and deforestation dramatically threaten the survival of this species. With support from Beauval Nature, the Aspinall foundation has developed a project to reinforce populations of Javan langurs. This project involves an intensive preparation phase for the animals before releasing them, as well as regular monitoring once they have been reintroduced into the wild.
In 2016, in partnership with Port Lympne zoo in England, 14 Javan langurs were released into the wild, including 2 that were born at Beauval (Samui and Indah). It was a unique and magical moment for our Java langurs as well as for our teams!
