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.

Hmm….

Don’t you believe everything you are told… 😆
