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.
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… ?
