Bush Hyrax (Heterohyrax brucei)

They are curious and clever climbers. These bush hyraxes live in a small colony on a church area in Ethiopia. The place is overgrown with a dense tree vegetation and provides an ideal habitat. They are diurnal as the rock hyrax and love to climp trees.

  1. They are lovely looking animals. Shame (or not) they are so shy.
