Description

After reaching the top of Table Mountain, I started heading in the direction of the tourist shop in order to find some much needed drinking water. I saw some people looking over the wall to the left, and I looked over. Just as I was hoping, there was a hyrax. I actually saw a few in that area.

Description

Date is approximate. Observed in early August, sleeping in a tree in the afternoon while taking a walk in the riverine forest on the lodge grounds - a common sighting here. Sadly, I didn't think to take a picture of it, unfortunate considering these guys aren't photographed very often at all.

Description from Wikipedia

Hyraxes (from the Greek ὕραξ "shrewmouse") are small, thickset, herbivorous mammals in the order Hyracoidea. Hyraxes are well-furred, rotund animals with short tails. Typically, they measure between 30 and 70 cm long and weigh between 2 and 5 kg. They are often mistaken for rodents, but are more closely related to elephants. Four species are recognised; the rock hyrax (Procavia capensis), the yellow-spotted rock hyrax (Heterohyrax brucei), the western tree hyrax (Dendrohyrax dorsalis) and the southern tree hyrax...
