Pictures of the hyrax, which are social rock dwellers that make loud savage cries. Though they look like rodents and rabbits, they're not related.
Hyraxes are often found huddled together basking on rocks because they have a difficult time maintaining body heat. They avoid predators by living on steep clifs and rocky outcrops.
