Bush Hyrax (Heterohyrax brucei)

Set of scaled elevation drawings of the Bush Hyrax viewed from the front and side

The Bush Hyrax (Heterohyrax brucei) is endemic to most sub-Saharan countries and is found mainly in the savanna and rocky areas. It is also called yellow-spotted rock hyrax. The bush hyrax is a browser with short legs, round ears, and a rudimentary tail. Its thick, short, coarse fur can either be dark reddish-brown or gray. The pads on its feet secret secretion to help it maintain a firm grip on rocky surfaces. The bush hyrax is aggressive and alert. This is because of its good sense of hearing and keen eyesight. Besides, it is very social, living in colonies.

Bush Hyraxes have a total body length between 12.2”-21.7” (31-55 cm), standing height of roughly 7.1”-12.2” (18-31 cm), and body width of 4.3”-7.5” (11-19 cm). The typical weight of the Bush Hyrax is in the range of 2.9-7.9 lb (1.3-3.6 kg). Bush Hyraxes have lifespans between 10-14 years.

You may think Hyraxes or Hyracoidea are cousins to rodents because of their small, thickset size, well-furred, and short tails. However, their close relatives are the sea cows and elephants. You can find them in the Middle East or sub-Saharan Africa huddling together or basking in the sun.
