General

The Hyrax truly is a beautiful mammal to photograph. They are very playful and regularly take on funny poses for the camera.

Background

Hyraxes are actually related to Elephants and Manatees !!!

There is evidence they all have the same ancestors. For instance: The tusks of hyraxes develop from the incisor teeth, like elephant tusks; in most other tusked mammals, the tusks develop from the canine teeth. And like elephants, manatees, and dugongs, male hyraxes lack a scrotum and their testicles remain nestled in their abdominal cavity.
