Asian Unicorn, A reservation for the Asian unicorn called, or saola, was established in Vietnam to protect rare species. Saola, which can only be a few hundreds only just discovered in 1992. Vietnamese researchers could only identify the species at first after discovering saola skulls with villagers in remote mountain regions. It has been classified as critically endangered.

The animal received his nickname “Asian unicorn” A year ago, but in reality it actually has two horns.

“They obviously have two horns,” said Barney Long to MSNBC, “but it is a fairly straight cylindrical horn, so if you look from the side, looks a bit like you have a horn.”

Captivity of the creature can be fatal. The villagers of Laos captured a man saola last year and died a few days.

“When in captivity they seem to act very tame, and are very open to people to come to them and touch them,” Long said on MSNBC? However, his calm demeanor is actually a function of extreme stress.

“The dog is going crazy,” he said.

The new reserve is the fourth set in the field believed to contain the saola.
