  1. Whole genome sequences were generated from Dsu-33 and Dsu-35
  2. aIndicates the year of birth. ICR is the Institute for Conservation Research. BBS is Burkit Barisan Selatan National Park. WK is Way Kambas National Park. NA is not applicable. Acquisition dates for the Sumatran Rhino Sanctuary (SRS) may be dates acquired from the wild or from another institution. Andalas was born in the Cincinnati Zoo in 2001 to Emi and Ipuh; Andatu is son of Andalas and Ratu. Bina was brought to the Safari Zoo in 1991 and moved to SRS in 1998. Sex of free-ranging rhinos was determined using molecular sexing (unpublished)
