    1. Adorable? By the looks of it, this beast is about to rip the photographers head off (or die trying) if they moves in one inch closer! Yikes...
      Fantastic shot! :o)

The rock hyrax or rock badger is one of the four living species of the order Hyracoidea, and the only living species in the genus ''Procavia''. Like all hyraxes, it is a medium-sized terrestrial mammal, superficially resembling a guinea pig with short ears and tail.
