Well Camouflaged

I noticed it at second glance, at first I thought a stone is moving; but it was a single African ground squirrel on the rocks.

This guy (a rock hyrax) was more curious and interested to see what I’m doing.

  5. Great looking animals - the hyrax is related to elephants if I recall a factoid from the past!
