Southern Tree Hyrax (Dendrohyrax arboreus)
Also known as the eastern tree hyrax, the southern tree hyrax is a species of hyrax (a group of rodent-like mammals more closely related to elephants than rodents) which occurs in temperate, sub/tropical dry, and lowland forests in parts of southeastern and south Africa. As evidenced by their common name, southern tree hyraxes exhibit arboreal behavior and are primarily nocturnal. Like other hyraxes, D. arboreus is herbivrorus feeding on a range of plant matter.
