The incredibly shy rock hyrax is native to Africa. These animals have rubber-like feet with a hollow middle, like a suction cup. This allows them to scurry quickly over rock faces to avoid predators and dash into the tiny holes in the rock wall that they call home.
These herbivores’ favorite foods are plants, berries and flower buds, but their diet also includes several poisonous plants. Amazingly, rock hyrax can eat plants that are too dangerous for other animals to eat because of their hardy three-chambered stomach.
