Israel: meet the rock hyrax, a biblic animal…

Have you ever encountered a rock hyrax ?

When I saw this little (big) guy at the mount of Beatitudes in Israel, a local said we were super lucky to see one as it was a rare biblic animal and could only be found in Israel.

I was oh so proud to have gotten a shot of this oh so rare animal.

Beeeeeep !!!

This rock hyrax or cape hyrax may be found in the bible (just 1 out of 120), but it’s actually found in Africa and the Middle East, and it even seems to be a pest as it multiplies so fast and they move into building foundations. They also might transmit skin diseases via flies around their bodies.


Don’t you believe everything you are told… ?
