I’ll admit that I never heard of a hyrax until today. I was looking up some African animals to try to post something a little different when I stumbled upon these cuties. So, what do you think? Isn’t a hyrax so cute and fuzzy? Aren’t they also really goofy?
An interesting tidbit here: if you read the Wikipedia article under the section “Evolution”, you’ll see that hyraxes are believed to be closely related to elephants as they both descended from a relatively close common ancestor: the giant hyracoids. In fact, hyraxes and elephants share several common traits, such as good memory and sensitive hearing. You should definitely check it out!
