Southern Tree Hyrax (Dendrohyrax arboreus)

Scaled collection of drawings of Southern Tree Hyrax in front and side poses

Unlike the Eastern tree hyrax (Dendrohyrax arboreus) which is mostly found on the eastern to the western coast of mid-Africa, the Southern Tree Hyrax is endemic to the south-central side. 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 Southern tree hyrax is a solitary and an herbivore that prefers trees with dense foliage to give it a good cover from predators. As a result, you will find it in the tropical or subtropical dry forests, montane forests, and moist savanna.

Southern Tree Hyraxes have a total body length between 12.6”-23.6” (32-60 cm), standing height of roughly 6.3”-11.4” (16-29 cm), and body width of 4.5”-8.7” (11.5-22 cm). The typical weight of the Southern Tree Hyrax is in the range of 3.7-9.9 lb (1.7-4.5 kg). Southern 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.
