The Hyrax - The Elephant's Cousin

2 April 2016

Meanwhile, over at the Ark in Space they have cranked up the cute quotient to the max with a feature on the hyrax. This rather lazy looking example is doing what the hyrax loves to do the best - sun bathe!  Although they may look like an over-sized guinea pig, their closest living relative is in fact the elephant.  Sounds bizarre, perhaps - but there's nothing quite as strange as real life!
