Eastern Tree Hyrax (Dendrohyrax validus)

Pair of elevation illustrations of the Eastern Tree Hyrax seen from the side and front

The Eastern Tree Hyrax (Dendrohyrax validus) unlike most tree hyraxes is mostly found in pristine forest stands with multi-layered canopies in restricted parts of East Africa. It resembles a guinea pig with long, soft, gray-brown fur, though the underside is pale and a fringe of white hair can be visible on its ears. It is nocturnal and arboreal, with males producing extraordinary or territorial calls at night. The Eastern tree hyrax prefers trees with dense foliage for a suitable cover from predators. This is in the tropical or subtropical dry forests, montane forests, and moist savanna. It is solitary and an herbivore.

Eastern Tree Hyraxes have a total body length between 18.5”-22” (47-56 cm), standing height of roughly 7.9”-9.4” (20-24 cm), and body width of 5.9”-7.1” (15-18 cm). The typical weight of the Eastern Tree Hyrax is in the range of 3.7-6.6 lb (1.7-3 kg). Eastern Tree 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.
