The order Hyracoidea contains one family Procaviidae with three genera. The four remaining species are Dendrohyrax arboreus (Southern tree hyrax), Dendrohyrax dorsalis (the Western tree hyrax) Heterohyrax brucei (Yellow-spotted rock hyrax) and Procavia capensis or (Rock Hyrax) shown in the picture above. There are, not surprisingly considering its distribution, many more common and regional names than those given above, for example in South Africa the hyrax is affectionately known as a Dassie.
Also of note is their sophisticated and romantic communication patterns, where the male sings quite complex songs to the female when trying to sell themselves. There are many videos of hyraxes on youtube and Taxon of the Day shares its favourite below.
