Rare Saola, Dubbed “Asian Unicorn,” Sighted for First Time in 21st Century

But camera traps set out by the World Wildlife Fund (WWF) and the Vietnamese government in the central Annamite Mountains in Vietnam captured grainy black and white photographs of the extremely rare mammal in September of this year, the group announced this week.
