Hyrax! / by Walter Kitundu

In the Serengeti you can always seem to find Hyrax around rocky outcroppings. They seem like rodents but are actually related to Elephants.

They can climb anything and the grippy pads on their feet allow them to scale nearly vertical branches.

Here is a closer look at those phenomenal feet.

You can also find them at most visitor centers. This one takes an afternoon rest cradled in a cozy rain gutter.
