Material of rhino is pvc similar to famous brands,

Him deteriorated paint, it looks old.

Tail position is strange.

Don't know which company made it, but it's a Javan rhino, an almost extinct species.

What makes you think that is Javan? The armour is like Javan/Indian but it have two horns like a Sumatran...

That's not a particular species. Clearly the sculptor mixed everything. The armour may ressemble a Javan rhino but it main feature is absent being the sield on neck part shaped like an Indian rhino instead of Javan. The presence of two horns also corroborates with this idea since it is clearly an Asian rhino and not an African rhino.
It is just a rhino, a charming rhino and a piece that tells a little how things work in this industry.

I based the ID on the armor plates and, while it does have 2 horns, the second one is way too big to be that of a Sumatran Rhino.  My guess is the long-ago artist assumed all rhinos had 2 horns!
